Fun in the Sun!

Happy Tuesday....and welcome to another challenge with Claudia & Company.

Our challenge is to make a Monochromatic Card.  The Design Team is showcasing the My Minds Eye Lush Collection and I am using papers from the Navy collection.  These papers are perfect for monochromatic cards and are double sided (with the exception of the flocked papers) giving you so many choices.  The image is one of the newer releases from  The Greeting Farm, Cheeky Beach (which unfortunately is out of stock right now).  I colored her with copics and added a few pearls to the center of her flower.  The ribbon is Ivory grosgrain from May Arts and the flowers and paper are also ivory (not white like they appear).  I created the sentiment on the computer and added some more pearls to finish off my card.

We would love to have you join in our challenge.  You will have until Saturday, April 16th to link up your entry.  For more monochromatic inspiration, head on over the the Claudia & Company blog

Your card looks stunning in those colours Jodi.

I'm a bit worried how I miessed these because as a self confessed MME groupie I usually grabe them from the shelves the minute they land.

Thank you so much for sharing your lovely creation and joining in my Bloomin’ Blossoms theme at Allsorts this week.
