Smoky Slate Thankful

This week at CASEing the catty, the challenge comes from the Baby chapter of the catalogue.  I am inspired by Nikki's work - so I've CASED her card and made it into a Thank you card.  I've kept to a monochrome colour scheme of Smoky Slate and Basic Gray.  This card comes from page 80 of the Catalogue, an apart from placing the central embellishment off centre, the layout is the same.

My bottom flag looks red in the photos - it is actually some silver foil - I think I've picked up the reflection of my red jumper when I photographed the card!! (tehehehe)  The greeting on the card is a little sneak peek of a stamp set coming soon!!


  1. I love the simplicity of this card, great CASE!!! The monochromatic scheme gives it a wonderful sense of elegance.
