I cheated a little as mine is not truly monochromatic. As you can see, I colored the mouse gray and the dandelion green. I just couldn't color them blue! Baby steps. Perhaps next time I will color my image in monochromatic tones as well. The papers and the sentiment are from Stampin Up. I've been hoarding the paper pad--the papers are double sided and I always feel guilty when I use double sided paper. It's like I'm wasting half of it! LOL. :) I flocked the dandelion for a little extra dimension and some additional interest, because the rest of card is plain.
I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Penny Black Saturday--"Monochromatic"
Sketch N Stash--Sketch 71
Thanks for looking! Have a great day!
