Mono!


No, no, not the illness! It's the last Sunday of the month, so it is time for the Roses Challenge! This month, Patti Rose has challenged us to make a monochromatic card. I chose to do mine in blue.
I am also going to be entering this card in Speedy the Cat's Friends Challenge # 44, where Joanne Travis has asked that we use food on our card.

My card was created using a white card base, A layer of DP from K&Co, and circles and stripes of white and Little Boy Blue, Pure Luxury card stock from Gina K. Designs. My cupcake and sentiments are from a set called Cupcake Birthday, from Mark's Finest Paper. For embellishments, I used glaze and gelly roll pens on the cupcake, then added Prima flowers and pearls from Queen & Co..

If you have a minute, it would be so nice to have you stop and see what the other Roses have to offer us in the way of lovely creations! Please visit Sue, Kerrie, Olga, Betty, Patti Sue, Kym, and Connie. Some of them may be snoozing, but give it a go!

Have a glorious Sunday!

Great card! Love how you colored that blueberry cupcake!
Glad to see you :) I was getting a bit worried. I've been working some long hours this past week as we are a person down. I have to go in today too,but I'm going to try to get something done. Bob's not home yet either.

I'm a sucker for a cupcake, and this is just too cute done in these great shades of blue! I'm terrible with doing mono cards, so I'm always envious of those who do them this well!
