Going Monochromatic

Happy Monday!

Do you love monochromatic cards? Then we have the challenge for you this week at Paper Cupcakes where
our host this week is the wonderful Katrina Benton. For those of you not familiar with this type of card...monochromatic: one color with variations of that same color from light to dark.


My image is Nina's "Moss Topped Birdhouse", isn't it adorable? My dp is Memory Box's Minuet. The Flowersoft on top and at the base was so easy and I think it adds the perfect touch. Hope you enjoy it and will try and play along with us this week. As always, you may use any image but if you use one by PCC then you will be entered twice for our prize drawing. Stop by and see the other ladies lovely projects. Blessings to you all.

Card Details:
Paper: Stampin' Up mellow moss, Memory Box Minuet, watercolor paper
Ink:SU markers
Image: PCC Moss Topped Birdhouse
Tools: Spellbinders Labels 4, GinaK buttons, SU hemp twine
