The Beauty Of A Colour

Hello Everyone!  This month the challenge is to use one color on your creation for a monochromatic look! You can use many shades of one color, but you must only use one color. Link up your Bringing Back Beautiful Challenge creations on the Flourishes Blog to enter. If you upload to SCS, please use the keyword BBB14. You have until September 30th to enter! As we unveil our challenge for next month, we’ll share our True Beauties – those card makers who wowed us with this challenge! Winners will be featured on the Flourishes Blog and will receive a True Beauty blog button to display proudly on their blog!
I began with a base of blue bazzill and layered with white (pierced) and some Authentique Journey DP.  The next panel is more white punched with the MS Deco Fan punch and layered with Kaisercraft Miss Nelly DP.  Around this I've attached some White Crochet Lace and topped with Blue satin ribbon.  I've stamped the Bellflowers from Flourishes new FLIP set called With Gratitude in Memento Tuxedo Black and coloured with Copics (G82, G85, BG78, B00, B21, B02).  It was cut out with Small Oval Nestabilities.  I then cut out some light blue bazzill with Fancy Tags Two and cut it in the middle to frame the oval top and bottom and then matted with some blue bazzill cut with Labels 10 Nestabilities and popped it all up on foam tape.  The sentiment is also from With Gratitude and has been stamped straight onto the DP.  To finish I added a blue bow, a white flower and some Kaisercraft Snow Pearls.
Don't miss the gorgeous Monochromatic cards that the team have for you today!!

That's all from me today, thanks for visiting and hope you play along with the Bring Back Beautiful Challenge this month!!!  :)
