Let's Go Monochrome
Happy Monday, everyone! You know what Monday means, right?! Monday means a new challenge at Craft Your Passion. We have a fun theme for you this week--Monochrome! I love making Monochrome cards, so I was thrilled to see this as our theme for the week.
Come on over and play along with us at Craft Your Passion and link up your project with the wonderful Mr Linky! Just a reminder of the standard rules--No backlinking of projects, please. Your creation must be new, created on or after the challenge date, and before the challenge ends. Any backlinked projects will not be in the prize drawing. You don't want to miss out on your chance to win images of your choice from CocoDingo and Lauretta's Digital Stamps, so please please please don't backlink. We really don't like to have to exclude anyone from winning.
I have to admit, my card for this theme is quite busy, with lots going on. I'm not quite sure what possessed me to add so many embellishments to it! LOL Part of me thinks it's a bit over the top... Then another part of me thinks it looks nice the way it is. But, I'll let you all decide for yourselves.
I went with all pink, again. I'm not much for wearing pink, but I love creating with this color. The image is from Lauretta's Digital Stamps and colored with Promarkers. I punched the circle and scalloped circle with punches by EK Success. I found this yummy scrummy pink velvet ribbon in the sewing section of Walmart and before I know it, it jumped into my cart and followed me home! The pink sparkly trim with the dangling crystals is actually mini Christmas tree trim from Hobby Lobby. I finished the card off with some gemstone flourishes and adhesive gemstones in two corners of the image.
And there you have it -- Monochrome with lots and lots of bling!
