A quick post today with my card for this weeks CAS-ual Friday challenge, "Mostly Monochromatic".  I found the quite hard this week.  First I couldn't decide which colour to use and then I wasn't really sure how to go about it.  I much prefer to add lots of colour to my card and found it hard to stick to one!







































Anyway heres my finished card, I feel it looks a little plain but have resisted the temptation to add more to it, after all it is a CAS challenge!

Stunning Sally. I haven't even attempted this weeks CAS-ual Friday... to hard for me... but I am so glad you did as this is so beautiful

Oh, Sally, your card is spectacular! Yellow is my favourite colour, and your colouring is beautiful. The embossing is amazing, I would have never thought to do this, and yet it is so effective!

Simply gorgeous card! Your technique and color choice is fabulous. What stamp set is that, btw? I LOVE it! Im guessing it's Hero Arts? Hmmm, I'll have to check out their catalog…

Great job on your card. Definite eye candy!
