Delightfully Monochromatic!

I hardly ever do the colour challenge on Splitcoast Stampers because I hardly ever have the right colours! - *cough*lame

But today was monochromatic, which means YES, I have the colour - which is any colour - a whole lot of times!!

I chose the Summer Sunrise colour from Papertrey Ink and the corresponding Father Knows Best patterned paper for my monochromatic scheme - hereafter referred to colour - because typing monochromatic is too long to keep typing!

The sentiment is from Verve Stamps, part of a line of "Plain Janes" which are absolutely gorgeous and nothing plain about them!

I stamped it in Summer Sunrise ink onto a 2 1/2" square of Papertrey Ink white cardstock.

The ribbon is - you guessed it-- Summer Sunrise satin ribbon and yes, the bow is wonky, but
I was too cheap lazy to grab a longer piece and so I had to tie it a million times and this is the lessest wonky I could come up with... LOL!!

It is another gorgeous day in Southwestern Ontario, and the first day of school for "our" kids - meaning the neighbourhood - YAY!

I plan to get outside, get my hands dirty with something other than my beloved ink and do some much needed yard work!!

Have a great day!!

    I've been pondering on whether I should buy some of those Plain Janes from Verve....ooh, I so want them a million times over. LOL!

    This is beautiful and a layout that can be used for so many different occasions. Just gorgeous.

  10. This is really quite lovely and cheerful!

  11. So pretty! I love that bow!!

  12. Gorgeous take on the monochromatic scheme. It looks SO pretty with those squares of dp. My best friend Kim (twingirls) came up with that colour scheme. I was SO proud of her. I thought it was brilliant. Now I need to try your trick of sneaky stamping (I'm supposed to be packing for a trip.) :O)
