The most challenging part of monochromatic cards for me is to first pick which color I want to create with. Then I have to decide what sorts of elements or embellishments I want to add that stays in that color family. My card for this week was made for my darling niece. I seriously don't know where the time disappeared to. It seems like not that long ago she was a tiny preemie princess and now she is no longer a teen - makes me a bit teary really. She is such a beautiful young lady. I wanted to make a card that reflects her a bit so I chose her favorite color for my monochromatic card.
I used a retired embossing folder from SU for the top layer then cut out a window and then layered a second die within that window for the sentiment. and popped it up a bit with some dimension dots. The flowers were an after thought as I felt that the card was too plain and needed some more. I was pleased to find these blue flowers in my stash - sweet! After I made this I wished I had used flat brads for buttons for the flower middles. But the first thing she did was touch the shiny brads and say "how pretty" - so I'm glad now that I chose them.
