It's a long way down


Today's card is going out in three directions !

Stampin' Royalty - Monochromatic (brown)

Shopping Our Stash - the letter "B" (black, brown, brads)


Unscripted Sketches - with this sketch ...

and my card looks like this !

and here is the tag that is inside the front pocket ...

Alas, I try so hard to make more colored cards, but I love the brown/black look !  I know that color combination never wins a challenge here in paperblogland, but oh well, I guess this is just who I really am.  lol

I used a crimper on some Kraft scrap, then distress paint, and a punch on the tag pocket.
