Mono = one . . . Chromo = color!

Well, well, welcome to Wednesday in my little corner of blogland!  Hope you're having a great week so far! Mine has been busy . . . catching up with cardmaking, housework, laundry, and other essential stuff now that I'm finally recovering from that nasty cold I caught from my sweet hubby! (Don't tell him I said that . . . I keep saying that it's not his fault! hehe!) So . . . guess what? It's time for another fun challenge at 7 Kids Challenge Blog . . . and I have a new card to share with you all. This week's challenge theme is . . .
Monochromatic!

Seriously? But, but  . . .  there are so many colors in the rainbow . . . and I really like using every one! Sigh! Oh, alright then! I'll follow the rules . . . sort of! Here's a peek at my "monochromatic" card . . . .


Why yes, it's true. Monochromatic would imply one color family! Well . . . I sort of went with a monochromatic, "black and white" photo looking theme!! What can I say? I just had to add a teensy little pop pf color! hehehe!! But it's mostly monochromatic, right? Let's just call it "artistic license," shall we? LOL!


Those fun sentiment tickets are from Whimsy Stamps . . . and that gorgeous ribbon is from Stampin' Up . . .



And the ever popular "artsy fartsy" view . . .


And there you have it . . . my version of a "Monochromatic" card! Now it's time for you to head on over to 7 Kids College Fund and take a peek at all the gorgeous creations by my 7 Kids Design Teamies! Then, pull out your craft supplies and join us for this fortnight's "Monochromatic" challenge #41 at 7 Kids College Fund!! And do you know why? Because there are fabulous prizes to be won! Whoohooo!

If you'd like to have this card for your very own, 
I've just listed it for sale 
in my ETSY Store HERE!

Thank you so much for visiting . . . and for your sweet comments! I'll be back tomorrow with another fun paper creation! Mwah!
