Little Paper Shop Monochromatic Challenge!

Today's Little Paper Shop Monday challenge is to make a monochromatic card. I'm not very good at them so this is as close as I could get !!

We would love for you to join us!! You certainly don't have to use an Little Paper Shop stamp, but if you've got them - why not use them!!?! Just use the keyword LPSC08 when you upload to Splitcoast Stampers or Papercraft Planet. Don't forget to check out Little Paper Shop's blog for the details and last weeks winner!!

I used the flourishes from Flourished Dove, to make a bit of a background. I stamped it in Vintage Cream ink onto Dark Chocolate cardstock and then ran my inkpad around the edges of the chocolate cardstock to give it some depth.

I stamped the sentiment, which is from Little Paper Shop's {A Dream}, in Dark Chocolate ink onto Kraft cardstock.

I added a bit of Sweet Blush cardstock, which was trimmed with the Stamping UP scalloped punch - LOVE it!! and adhered some sweet blush ribbon and a couple of buttons!

The added ribbon goes along with Sharon Johnson's Stamp Simply challenge, which is to add some snippets of leftover ribbon to your card and after I searched the floor, I found some!! yay!!

Thanks for looking and now go and search your floor for some ribbon snippets for your cards!!
