Green Thoughts

I love COLOR! All colors! A lot of color!!! And I love designer papers that showcase a variety of colors. Soooooooo... what was April thinking when she challenged the Sistahs (Sisterhood of the Traveling Cards swap group) to create MONOCHROMATIC cards!??!?!?!? EEK!!!

Here's my best attempt...


hmmmmmmmm... I wonder if it's okay that I also used white on my card. (Is green and white considered monochromatic?)



Can you see the two colors of green on the stamped image. It's really quite fun. I used to love Stampin' UP!'s two-step stamping sets, but hadn't used one in quite a while. And look at those gorgeous pearls.


The inside of the card has a wee bit of pizzazz, too...


I even added a teeny tiny pearl to the inside sentiment...


I hope April likes my cards!


Image & Sentiments: Stampin' UP! Field Flowers
Ink: Stampin' UP! Certainly Celery, Garden Green, and Wild Wasabi
Cardstock: Stampin' UP! Whisper White and Wild Wasabi
Designer Paper: Paper Studio
Embellishments: Stampin' UP! Pearls and Wild Wasabi Ribbon

Lovely! Yes, I think a neutral is okay with monochromatic color scheme. Love the green and love the two-step stamped image and the beautiful embellishments too! Hmm, I know someone else who'll love this green card!;)

This is a very pretty card--I love the shades of green (did you check out my card today?) I too used white and I am sure April will accept it.

Very lovely, indeed! Love those greens and the rich pearls, too. Makes me want to do two step stamping again, it's been a while!

Lovely monochromatic card! I'm not very good at them, but yours turned out perfect! I like the different size pearls you used, that's a great idea!
