Today's Kitchen Sink Crew Challenge #11 is brought to us courtesy of our very talented Guest Hostess, Makiko Jones!! Makiko has created some amazing projects using Kitchen Sink Stamps and today has asked us to create a monochromatic card using dimensionals.
I couldn't decide between orange and gray, so I just did both.
I started my orange card by stamping the butterfly from the First Anniversary Special Limited Edition Set, A Year of Thanks 2008 in Tangerine Tango on the card front to create a patterned background to compliment the BasicGrey designer paper. The orange rose was stamped on Naturals Ivory which had been cut with Nestabilities Label 2. The dimensionals were used to hold the label up off the cardfront.
Stamps: Hearts & Roses, A Year of Thanks 2008, and Never a Loss 4 Words by Kitchen Sink Stamps
Papers: Pumpkin Pie, Tangerine Tango, and Naturals Ivory by Stampin' Up, ambrosia by BasicGrey
Inks: Pumpkin Pie and Tangerine Tango by Stampin' Up
Embellishments: Ribbon and Dimensionals

My grey card is a 5 1/2 inch square. I used a black Spica pen to add a little sparkle to the butterfly wings. The dimensionals hold up the sentiment tag.
