CAS-ual Friday's Mostly Monochromatic


Today i have a card for CAS-ual Friday's challenge. The challenge is to use a monochromatic (3 colors) plus 1 color (brown). To add to my Christmas stash i decided to make a Christmas card.

I was actually was going to use different stamps, squares actually, but when i tried to add them to my card with the ribbon and bow, my card just wasn't big enough. So instead i used the string of lights. I stamped the cord in brown ink. Then for the lights i used a dark and a lighter greenish/blue ink. To get the 3rd (lightest color) i stamped it off once before stamping my card.

I tied a brown and silver bow across the top. I stamped the sentiment sending holiday joy in brown also. Last i added some liquid pearl to the middle of each light.

Thanks for stopping by!!
