Less is More - Week 18

Oh my where does the time go? I can't believe it's a week into June already, but a week tomorrow we go on holiday, hurrah! I made my first card for this weeks challenge at Less Is More on Tuesday evening but have only just had the chance to take a picture. Our challenge set by Mandi and Chrissie is Monochrome and this is my take on it...

I've gone with shades of teal card and ink, although in the picture the embossed detail on the letters looks black, but IRL it's dark teal!

It's taken me well over an hour to write this post! My husband has just bought himself and Xbox (as if he doesn't own enough games consoles already) and the game he playing is so distracting, but in a good way. The graphics are fantastic and it's like watching a really high quality animated film. Anyhoo, enough waffle I have a few bit's to do and then I may pop back and post my other attempt at this weeks LIM challenge.

I would also like to enter this card into the following challenges:

CES Challenges: Clean and simple
