Billie and Monika #1 challenge - cloths with out body

Monday February 20, 2017
Monika's card is posted now.
UP DATE:  Monika is running late on her posting. She said she will post at 9pm her time(Germany)  (so 12 noon pacific nw time) so please check out her card around that time.
It's Billie and Monika challenge time again.. Only between the two of us.
I will pick February / March.. Monika will pick April / May.. so on and so forth.. (we will take a Aug/Sept. break) We will post once a month on the third Monday.
We have done this before where we challenged each other on a theme.. we had to stop because life got in the way but now we are going to start it up again... I really like it because Monika makes cards different than I do. I like the challenge (I suggested a shaker card for us but she put her foot down, she was not going to do it.. LOL so I gave in .. so no shaker cards but sounds like anything else is possible)
Monika's blog is Creative with Monika, she lives in Germany and is a very talented lady. I love that she seldom uses designer papers. Most of her backgrounds are created by her. I love that. I am to Americanized.. We have so many stores with craft supplies and I understand the other side of the big pond they are limited or too expensive. I guess I am just spoiled but I have been trying to create my own background more and more.
Ok since I got to chose the theme.. It's CLOTHING.. without a body.. so no one wearing cloths.. I used Simon Says stamp set for the background and scallop border die.. The sentiment is white embossed on Vellum .. love the look.  I used Nuvo crystal drops and Stampin up silver twine.  The background is Ranger inks sponged on and water drops for a distressed look. 
I am pleased with the way it came out.. Now head over to Monika's blog to see what she did for our challenge.. See ya again the third Monday in March.
