Just Magnolia - Monochrome

This week the Just Magnolia challenge is monochrome. Now there was some confusion amongst the DT (me especially) - some of us have interpreted it as it should be - shades of all one colour, others have interpreted it as one colour plus white. So we're leaving this up to you as to which way you decide to go.bev

So, here's my interpretation - guess who didn't Google the word monochrome before she made her card rofl.  I used these gorgeous Melissa Francis papers, just love the country look to them.  The punched border is done with an EK Success punch that I picked up from The Hobby House at the show last week - I have a serious addiction to punches lol - takes me almost as long to choose the punch as it does the papers!!.  The flowers - I punched some little heart petal flowers and plonked some tiny roses in the centres, the leaves are punched with the Ash Branch punch.  The little pearl hearts are new in at The Hobby House and the gorge ribbon is a rak from Tab, thanks sweetie xx



Thanks for stopping by,

  30. Gorgeous card Bev. I looked up the word monochrome in the dictionary (well I would, wuldin I!) it says there are two meanings: 1. in one colour only 2. in black and white only; so you takes your choice;o))
    Have to say I have always puzzled over the exact meaning. Anyways, what does it matter when there's such fab results;o) Have a great w/end, Nettie xx
