A Monochrome Challenge at Spoon!

Yes, today's challenge at A Spoon Full of Sugar is to create a Monochrome color card. I love the look of these type of cards - sometimes it is really nice to stick with one color in different shades. And for me I decided to go with shades of brown -and started with a brand new image from Stampavie's artist - Penny Johnson! These cuties are called "Puppy and Kitten"... adorable huh?

I colored with my Copics - and then went to work on my card - starting off with the pattern papers from Papertrey Ink -

I matched with a brown Bazzil Card stock - then a white for the mats. I punched a Martha Stewart Loop border - and then sewed everything down - The ribbon is also from Papertrey Ink, I tied it around one of the patterns, with a large bow. The sentiment is also from Stampavie!!! It is from Rachelle Anne Millers newest collection - there are two sets to choose from and you will love them both!

Make sure to pop over and see the other DT cards at A Spoon Full of Sugar - and then join us in playing with Monochrome colored cards... you could win a FABULOUS prize! Wish I could win... LOL!
