Monochromatic Thank You


Fun challenge to have a chance at winning Flourishes new release.  There are 4 steps, so you can make 4 cards with each one adding a step or make 1 card with all 4 steps.  Here's my card utilizing the sketch (1) made with KI Memories printed paper pad in shades of tan/brown (2) with the cover of my card covered in the paper with a damask design from the collection (3) and clear Recollections gems on the tree (4).  I used 2 great Flourishes sets: The tree from Thinking of You & the sentiment from Wreaths of all Seasons.  The dies are Spellbinders Classic Scalloped Rectangles Large.  I stamped the sentiment in Brilliance Pearlescent Chocolate.  Neat thing about this challenge is that I can enter my card for each step of the progressive challenge--4 chances to win!  I love how the card came out, so it's a win no matter what.  Thanks so much for taking time to come by.  Hope you're having a great week.

Absolutely fantastic Greta. Great colour choice.

Hello Greta
It is unusual to see a brown monochromatic colour Palette, mostly because it is not seen as an exciting hue; it is more rooted, protective and secure as browns are connected to the earth. However, this card elicits a positive response; one immediately thinks of Chocolate; a delicious brown and in good taste.
Very beautiful.
