Monochrome look ...

... that's the look I've gone for with my card for the Clean & Simple challenge.  The sketch for this week's Fall-to-layout (FTL114) is as follows:


I like this sketch - it really is clean and simple!!  So, what did I do?  Well, I changed the shape of the card from a square to a DL landscape and decided not to bother with stamping at all.  I bought a beautiful Kanban kit from QVC some while ago.  The card is simply wonderful - lovely colours, with flourishes and swirls and deeply foiled, and it came with some wonderful die cut flowers.  I tried them on the black and silver swirly card, but felt it was a bit too much!!  Yes, I know sparkly is good, but sometimes, too much.  And that's how I came up with this:



Card:  Papermania
Embellishements:  Kanban kits from QVC

I've got another busy day today - I've got to sort out the Scouts programme for the next couple of months, finish the ironing (again!!), do some of my MCC homework (the fun bit) and start to work on my next OU course.  This time I'm doing a course about the planets in our Solar System - brilliant!! 

That's all for now.  Back again tomorrow.

Beautifully done Deborah. I love the striking contrast between the black & White. Outstanding!

What a great flowing line of flowers Deborah - the white looks super against the black!

This is a beauty - love the interpretation of the sketch. All the best with the Scouts. My crafting friend Julie's husband is a Regional Deputy commissioner or whatever it's called & often out on exercises with lads.
Take care with all the ironing.
