A Card and a Tag




Hi everyone,
This week's Cue Card at CASology is Monochrome, and I just couldn't resist playing along. 




So, I grabbed my new PTI In the Woods die and die cut it in light blue, and added a darker blue background. The sentiment is from an old Watzingmouse set, and I thought the font went well with the branches.

For the current Tag You're It Challenge, inspiration was provided by 'Amazing' Donna Mikasa with this beautiful card:


And here is the tag I created based on her inspiration:



I used my new Altenew Painted Butterflies stamp set with several different inks and the SSS 'You' die is stacked three times in black.

So, that's it for me. I hope everyone is staying warm ~ Thanks for stopping by,

Looks like you've been having some crafty fun Barb. The blues you chose for your monochrome card work perfectly together, but ohmygosh, those butterflies are divine!

Such a lovely card, Barb ... you've captured a moonlit walk in the woods so beautifully ... even down to the scattering of shine across the branches! Fabulous tag, great colours ... love how the 'you' is hanging off the edge! Anita :)

Amazing card and tag both. I love the sentiment you chose for your first card, and it is a perfect fit under those trees. Love the little bling you added to the trees as well. And, those butterflies--well, they just went on my wish list. What a beautiful way to make a colorful tag. Thanks so much for playing along at CASology this week.
