Less is More - take three challenges

 This week at Less is More we choose any three earlier challenges and combine them.  My card started out as based on Week 4 which was 3 squares as I remembered this framed tree stamp that I bought at Blade Rubber in London a couple of years back, which has not been used.  But it was larger than I remembered and using it 3 times didn't leave enough white space, so I changed direction and went with these challenges instead:
Week 12 off centre
Week 18 monochrome
Week 22 shades of blue
Trees are inked with Parisian Dusk Memento (I'd forgotten I had some little Memento pads, found them when I was emptying a drawer jammed with stash!), then Adirondack Stream and Denim inked through a mask.  Sentiment is Stampin' Up and I've matted my card onto a thin border of navy cardstock.  Think I might make another with a tiny white circle uninked for a moon, but I really like this one too...

My card is for the following challenges:
Less is More - combine three challenges
Just Add...  - something from your stash (stamp and ink)
365 Cards - buried deep (two bits of unused stash, stamp and ink again!)
Rubber Cafe - through the window - the stamp is like a window frame
