CAS- Monochrome Card

Morning a quick card today and short post; I finally got the opportunity at last to play with my GC and new die cuts at the weekend . It’s the first time I’ve attempted this style of card and not sure if I like it or not but will enjoy the challenge of trying some more. I tried to keep the design simple and not add too any embellishments which was difficult for me to do but overall I’m quite happy. I love the the intricate dies and didn't want to detract from them .I love the butterfly embossing which was a free folder with a magazine which I had to emboss twice to get the correct size was more difficult than I thought to line it up properly ! which means it has a join hence the ribbon being in a slightly strange position ideally I would have had the centre panel higher also, but the glue had already set once I realised this, Off to get ready for work but hopefully will get some more crafty  time later in the week. Hope you have a great week ahead, thanks for visiting its much appreciated; hugs Andrea X.
