I have been following Donna for a few years now I first came across Donna's blog by playing on Kristina Werner's color challenge each week. I love checking in with Donna's blog she has such a clean and elegant style. I meet Donna at a Stampin' Up Convention a few years back at a Splitcoaststamper Dirty Dozen card exchange years ago (not sure if she remembers).

When I though about what I could make to create Donna's style 2 things came to mind.. Texture she is the Queen of Dry Embossing and the second a monochromatic color scheme. Donna keeps it simple. I think that is what draws me to her.. I have such a hard time keeping it simple and need a reminder once and a while to go clean and classy like Donna.. In the back of my mind I kept thinking. "you could add a little here and you could do this or that.) but I had to keep the simple elegance of Donna in mind..
THANKS Donna I REALLY enjoyed making this card for your challenge.. I LOVE the say it turned out.. Thanks for helping me go back to one of my favorite looks EVER..

Good Luck with your challenge and CONGRATS on your mile stone.

Come join Donna's challenge here.
