May all your wishes come true

The current challenge at Penny Black Saturday is "Monochromatic."  I don't know about you, but monochromatic challenges have always seemed a bit daunting to me.  I decided to try it out anyway, because I think monochromatic cards look so clean and polished.  This week's fun sketch from Sketch N Stash made it easy, and I like the end result.  


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!
