Clean & Graphic Thank You


Here's my entry for the Card Concept #9 challenge which is to make a monochromatic purple card. I used elegant eggplant and plum cardstock, die cutting diamond shapes, and adding a simple Hero Arts sentiment stamped in elegant eggplant ink. For the finishing touch, I added 3 tiny gemstones for a little interest. I'm calling this one "clean & graphic."

Wishing you all a wonderful Friday, and thanks for stopping by!

Carol

I like it! I have some diamond shaped die cuts. When I found them I was tickled and thought for sure they would be all the rage, but so far it's just you 'n me using them.
