Monochramatic and Loving It

The Thursday Throwdown Challenge last week on Colleen's blog was to make a card using only one color (plus neutrals). Well, as you can imagine, I haven't had a whole lot of time for stamping lately so these ATC's are just perfect for a quick little something. I've even started just mounting them on a 2.5" x 3.5" card base and enclosing them as a little notecard because I haven't had any REAL creative time for a while.

I started with a scrap of Au Chocolat paper and added some Diamond Glaze/Glitter mixture to jazz up some of the flowers. Next I stamped the You Inspire Me sentiment from the Verve Visual Thoughtful Phrases set in Chocolate Chip on Very Vanilla and cut out with my Creative Memories Oval Cutting Syste4m. I added some dots around the edges with a Chocolate Chip marker and matted on a Super Jumbo Scallop oval punch in Chocolate Chip. I then used the horizontal slot punch to make a ribbon slider and wrapped some Chocolate grosgrain around the edges of the patterned paper. I finished off with two photo corners made from a Mega scalloped square punch and some more glitter mixture to accent. Everything is on a Chocolate Chip ATC base. I took the pic when the glitter wasn't quite dry so it looks quite a bit less blobby in real life!
