Monogram at Less Is More

I used a purse I have had forever as my inspiration piece....
I cut the purse on my Cricut.......
for the base of the card I tried red, black, shimmery white and glossy before I finally settled on the black....
I also tried several placements on the card stock....
 finally settling for towards the bottom as the straight edge on the bottom of the purse just didn't look right anywhere else.....
I still haven't found my
"mojo"
maybe it's because I haven't felt too great all week...

maybe I need to "buy" something...lol

Did you know that CAS also means Class and Style? I love that purse and your monogram is spot on the photo inspiration. Although I must admit that your purse is my favorite; a jaw dropper!
