Caardvark's Core'dinations challenge

The challenge at Caardvarks this time is to use Core'dinations cardstocks in a monochromatic design.   My friend Yvonne found a package of Core'dinations called All in the Family in Indigo.  It contains 4 different coordinating cardstocks in the grey-blue family.  The very darkest color is the little frame around the sentiment.  The second darkest is the card body, the third is the darker nesties frame, that was embossed with the Swiss Dots folder and sanded.  And the very lightest color was used for the sentiment and the inner frame, stamped with faded jeans distress ink.  The Hero Arts Hydrangea stamp was colored with prismacolor pencils in the same blue tones.
Supplies: Core'dinations Indigo All in the Family cardstock pack, Cuttlebug Swiss Dots folder, Hero Arts stamps CG119 Flourish Background, K5376 Hydrangea, Northwoods sentiment, faded jeans distress ink, prismacolor pencils
