Challenge Chicks #7-Designer Styler

Today is Monday so it must be challenge chick time!

Today's challenge was presented by our very own Ali Miles. She challenged the CHF design team to pick ONE member of the design team and case either 1) something from their gallery OR 2) their style. For this challenge I chose the person who's style is probably the furthest away from mine...Mona Lisa Strahl! Mona has a very clean style and often makes one layer cards which I struggle to make myself. When Mona posted this card in the CHF gallery, it went right into my favorites. Here's her card:
















I cased it pretty closely. Here's the one I made:

CHF Stamps:
-Houndstooth Backgrounder
-Beautiful (The Rummage Bin)
-Birthday Centers (Mona Lisa's Moments)

Paper:
-Georgia Pacific white cardstock

Ink:
-Shell Pink & Pitch Black Adirondack ink by Ranger

Accessories:
-Black Rick Rack by Ribbon Trios from Michael's

Check out what all the other girls did. Start with Lisa and hop through the rest of the gangs blogs! Julie, Sherrie, Lori, Kim, Dawn, Julia, Lesley, Val, Michele and Alli.
