monotone: noun

consisting of or characterized by a uniform tone of one color

 This is the third challenge in the Cool Tools Week and it's about using your punches. I used my snowflake border punch across the bottom of my pattern paper and then used some of the negative punches to accent the snowflakes and to carry the theme of falling snow off the pattern paper onto the solid card stock. I am also loving the suede string that I tied across the border, the whole card has a very soft look to it.

paper- Anna Griffin

What a cute idea! The falling snowflakes tie into your sentiment so well!
