Crafty Cardmakers Challenge #61: Monochrome

Hello! We've got yet another fabulous challenge for you at Crafty Cardmakers! :) This time, we want to see monochromatic projects. It doesn't have to be black and white, just choose a color and roll with it! :)

Here are our fabulous sponsors (click on the picture to go to their sites)~



So, monochromatic. I chose BLUE. It's my DH's favorite color, and since Valentine's Day is upon us, this one's for him! :)


This is actually my weekly "Spread the L-O-V-E" project, as well!!! It's the last card my DH will receive for his 14 Days of Valentines. More details here if you'd like to join me in spreading the love this year!!! :)

Here is the card~

Details~



What do you think? I rather like it! :) Was really pleased with it! I'm also linking this card up with the Top Tip Tuesday Valentine challenge. I DO have another TIP for you in regards to this card! :) Using a slit punch at either end of where you'd like your twine to go helps you to tie it easier--and it creates an easier way for you to connect it to your project! :)

I'm also linking this card up with Nina's I {Heart} Ribbon Challenge--Ribbon & Hearts!!! :) Nina's in need of more players--won't you join us?! It's always fun to have a ribbon challenge thrown in now and then!!! :)

I hope you'll take the opportunity to come and play along with us--and check out the other DT creations! You WON'T be disappointed! Happy stamping!!! :)Link

This is very cool! Monocromatic doesn't come easy to me so I think you did a fantastic job making it work! :)

Jess said...

I love that! It's so cute without being super-feminine. My poor sweetie is getting a pretty feminine gift, but since it's filled with chocolate I'm pretty sure he'll forgive me. ;)
