Sunday 7 July 2013


We have a new challenge over at Card Makin' Mamas and the theme for this month's challenge is monochromatic!  Here is my card:

I have used the fabulous Cup of Sunshine from this month's sponsor Meljen's Designs.  I coloured the image with my copics and added some Viva Decor around it.  The papers are all Pink Petticoat.  The corner dies are Whimsy and the border die is SB Edgeabilities.  I mimicked the twine and heart around the mug with some twine from The Ribbon Girl and a die cut heart using Lil Inkers die.

Our sponsor for this challenge is:

we were all given images to work with so pop over to Card Makin' Mamas to see what the rest of the design team have done.

Challenges I would like to enter:

Cute Card Thursday - Stars and/or Stripes
The House That Stamps Built - DCC 73 Monochromatic
Penny's Paper Crafty - Spots and Stripes
Sisterhood of Crafters - Stars and/or Stripes
Lady Anne's Challenge - Monochrome
