Susan is our hostess this week, and she challenged us to go mono. I really like this look, but don't tend to do it very often. My card is made with white cardstock, a single ink (Brilliance pearlescent purple) and minimal accessories... doesn't get much more "back to basics" than that!
I started with a scrap of white cardstock (3 1/2" square), and I repeatedly stamped the floral image from the Cookie Plate Botanicals. I then went around the edge with the ink*, then adhered it to a white card base. The phrase is from Little Things - isn't that a great sentiment for a birthday? The final touch was line of pearls (Kaisercraft). I love the final result - definitely simple, but it still has a sense of richness to it.

*Brilliance pearlescent inks are so gorgeous - fabulous coverage and a beautiful shimmer; if you haven't tried them out, then I'd highly encourage you to pick up a couple to play around with. I love the Dew Drop size, too, as it makes it easy to ink small areas of a stamp or edges as I've done here. These can be purchased from smARTworks as well as most chain craft stores.
