K is for...

...Kate, my niece. It's her birthday soon and I thought I would make a monogram card as it fits with this week's challenge over at Less Is More, the theme is "Monogram".


K5

I've used PTI's Polka Dot Basics 2 for the background and one of the frames from the Mat Stack 3 collection.

K1

The clear lid tin is also by Papertrey. I stamped the polka dot on a strip of card and stamped my sentiment along the edge, adding a tiny monogram to match my card.


K3

The colours were determined by the chocolate eggs, aubergine and lavender. I've used PTI's soft stone cardstock, a really lovely light grey.

K2


And finally a close up of the monogram. The letters are from a Papermania alphabet stamp set.

Phew, that's it for today, 2 posts in one day is some going so I'm now off to put my feet up and enjoy my Sunday evening!
