SUOC68 Secret Garden

We have a FUN challenge for you on SUO Challenges…create with a Monochromatic look!  I don't think I've ever set out just to make a Monochromatic card!  Yesterday's French Foliage card was monochromatic and green, too!  I must be on a kick with green (maybe because we aren't seeing a lot of green around in Ohio yet!  I know…I keep whining about wanting SPRING to get here!  lol!)

 

But…here's my take on a monochromatic look.

 

 

Here are the details:

  1. Base is 4 1/4 x 11 Whisper White, folded in half.
  2. Layer is 3 3/4 x 5 Lucky Limeade cardstock, stamp 3 Secret Garden leaves with Lucky Limeade Ink on the front, stems together.
  3. Cut 3 small flowers from Vellum Cardstock with the Secret Garden Framelits.
  4. Punch three 1/2" Circles from Lucky Limeade Patterns Designer Paper and add to center of flowers.
  5. Add Pearls to Centers.
  6. Stamp Here's To You from Friendly Phrases (oops!  thanks for catching that!) in Lucky Limeade on Whisper White, punch with Ticket Duo Punch.
  7. Tie Whisper White Taffeta Ribbon in a bow, add to front with Mini Glue Dot.

Clean and classy, huh?  I think it fits the monochromatic theme pretty good!!!

Connie,
     I love all the cards you make and have even cased a few of them.  The saying on this card is from "friendly phrases" I think not wonderful words.  I looked at the current catalog to find it as you had me stumped for awhile.  All your cards have been using products that are current so when listed a none current one I had to check.  It was a good way to find out if people are really looking at your work.  I will continue to enjoy your cards.
