Towards the end of July and the end of my guest trendsetter stint with There She Goes, I literally groaned when I saw the set Jessica was releasing for August. I groaned because I was sooo bummed that I wasn't going to get to play with it!! So the first thing I did when I rejoined the TSG DT on a more permanent basis was to snap this set up. It's called Spread Your Wings and I loooooooove it!!
Hopefully no one gives me the gong for this card. I hope it passes as being monochromatic. I used various shades of rust, which is such a warm and cosy color. I'm seeing lots of it around me at the moment here in the New England area. I stamped one of the quotes from the set onto some Very Vanilla cardstock with and heat embossed it so that it give it some shine. Then I cut it out with the Labels Four nestie and sponged a bit of Antique Linen onto the corners so it softened the edges a little. Then I matted it twice with some rust colored Bazzil cardstock, adding a few pop dots between the two layers so the layers didn't get lost stacked against each other. Added the ribbon, the butterfly from the set and some Kaiser pearls to frame the quote, and I was done.
A nice, quick card that says so much. Now it's your turn to create a card for the challenge. Create a card/layout using a monochromatic color scheme and go to the TSG Blog to add your name and a link to your project in the Mr. Linky that is located at the bottom of the challenge post. This challenge is open until the winner is announced next Monday (Oct. 12th).
