Play Date Challenge #39

Hello Delightful friends and family!
I almost forgot to post this challenge from Play Date Cafe and it expires Tuesday night! I'd be sad if I missed the deadline, one of my favorite stamp companies is the sponsor this week: UNITY STAMP CO. I even used one of Unity's stamps for the sentiment in this weeks card. Here is a very monochromatic card with just a touch of black. I also used my Copic marker (E79) to color the pearl to fit in with the color scheme. Here is the inspiration for this weeks challenge!

Here is my card: (definitely click to enlarge, otherwise you miss out on these fun papers and the details)


Here are the ingredients and some of the details:
Paper: DCWV: Linen Closet and Pastel (cream) cardstock; Bazzill: Kraft, black
Ink: Memento, rich cocoa; Distress Ink, frayed burlap for distressing the dry embossed kraft paper and around the sentiment.
Stamps: Unity Stamp Co.(Birdie Inspiration), Shabby Green Door (Vintage Background)
Embellishments: KaiserCraft adhesive pearl
Tools: Marvy Uchida punches: large blossom, small scallop circle; Cuddlebug, Victoria embossing folder, Spellbinder Nestabilities Labels One; Ranger, blending ink tool
