Less is More meets Dynamic Duos!

he theme this week at Less is More is paper piercing. I've never been very successful with this technique so decided to keep it really simple!  I stamped the border from the Madison gardens set in indigo blue and outlined it with a row of holes top and bottom, using my Tim Holtz ruler.
I then decided to add a scored line and another row of piercing. Bad mistake because the ruler slipped - so disguised it by adding a sentiment on top! I added some punched out flowers and a bit of bling. After I had finished I discovered that Dynamic Duos this week was "monochrome using Island Indigo and Pool Party. How serendipity was that?

Card: Island Indigo, Pool party, Whisper White
Stamp set: Madison Gardens, A Little Greeting
Ink: Island Indigo
Other: Itty Bitty flower punch, rhinestones, word window punch.
