Monchromatic Thanks

 Hello friends, I hope you are all well and surviving whatever weather you are experiencing - there have certainly been some extremes these past few days.  Although it is summer here, we have had a fair bit of rain - it is lovely and unusual seeing the grass so green in January - especially when drought is not rare for us.

Today I am sharing a monochromatic card with you - I love these earthy tones.  Some Dies just seem to find their way to my desk, time and time again - and the Gold Majesty Circles Spellbinders® Imperial Gold die is one of those. It has been cut/embossed using white cardstock and adhere to a card base with patterned paper already attached.

The Lacey Circles Spellbinders® Nestabilities® Decorative Elements dies has been cut/embossed using Authentique Paper  - Glistening Collection and popped up on  Scrapbook by Adhesives by 3L - 3D Foam Squares for dimension.  The last layer has been cut/embossed using the Rounded Squares Nestabilities.  All Dies have been cut using the  Spellbinders™ Grand Calibur® Die Cutting and Embossing Machine

Vintage lace (removed from a doily- shhh) has been added, along with  Want2Scrap© 72 Count - LeCreme Pearls - Self Adhesive and some flowers from my stash.

This card is for the following challenges:
Through the Craft Room Door - Anything Goes
Creative Card Crew - Shabby Chic
Scrapbook Stamp Society Challenge - Anything Goes option of Happy Birthday
Deep Ocean Challenge - Lace & Pearls
Not Just Cards Challenge - Anything Goes
