Peaceful monochrome

Happy Wednesday!!  It's time for another challenge from The House That Stamps Built.  And this week it is a fan favorite: Anything Goes.  I have to admit, I am often running behind and this week I was true to form, and was so glad it is an anything goes challenge!  Since I was so behind, I decided to go with a monochromatic color scheme (white and gray) and leave my image uncolored.  I think it created a really elegant, masculine card, which is good because I need to send out a masculine card this week.  Here is my card:
 I added a torn edge along the bottom (something I haven't done in ages!) to give it interest and texture without having to add any additional layers.  I also added texture with the twine and the stitched rectangle die.
Thanks for stopping by!  I hope you get a chance to play along with us this week, I can't wait to see what you come up with!!

Supplies:
Stamps: Repeat Impressions "Bass Harbor Light (lg)" and "Birthday"
Dies: MFT "Blueprints 13" stitched rectangle

Oh what a beautiful masculine card. This image truly stands alone. Love the torn edge I remember doing that a lot a few years ago. Great card.

Very elegant and sophisticated, like the extra touches of the twine, stitched layer and torn edge to this image that is elegant by itself.

Love the scene in black and white...makes me regret all the times I didn't purchase an image because I was intimidated by the challenge of coloring it. The torn edge is a great design element.
Thank you for playing along with the Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge!
