Less is More - Monochrome

Here is my card for this week's Less is More, where the challenge is Monochrome. I have had so little time and so little inspiration this week, but I managed to finally have a go  at about ten last night. I used a clarity corner stamp and majestic blue versafine. I am getting better at these. It still isn't perfect, but it is a big improvement to the first one I made. Hope this is CAS enough - not as much white space as I normally have!
Thanks for looking! I will try and leave as many comments as I can, but as I still have 12 reports to write and a lot of tweaking to do I might not get round as many as usual. Bear with me. I should have finished them by the end of next week!

Excellent work with the Clarity corner stamp Sally. This is really lovely and I have the same stamp so I know it takes practice (which I haven't had yet, lol!).

Good luck finishing those reports.

Well done with your corner stamp, Sally. I have this one and can never get it right. The poor stamp languishes in the bottom of a box now!!!!
It looks lovely in blue.
Good Luck with the reports.

I'm so impressed that you've entered a card at all when you're report-writing and this is a beauty! I love the blue and white - it looks like a delft tile. Vx

Beautiful card! LOVE the blues! Sorry you're having to work on reports! I've just finished four 11 hour days at work (auditing a bank) and I'm exhausted!...not only that, but it's put me way behind in my commenting on all the beautiful cards in this challenge! LOL!!

Wow Sal .. .. that looks like some serious hard work!!!

I can't imagine mine lining up so perfectly if I had a go at this.

Sounds like you have lots on your plate with all those reports. I hope you have made good headway with them ahead of the weekend.

Have a good one.
