It's challenge day over at Stamp, Scrap & Doodle Saturdays again. This time you have to make a monochromatic color item. I chose to find a challenging color scheme (or at least a color I haven't used for a while). For the card, I picked orange. I took a DCWV cardstock and ran it thru my cuttlebug for the dry embossing. Since the textured cardstock is white underneith, I took my spongy sanding block and exposed it. Then I had this one orange Flora-Doodle flower from Petaloo available. I then used my Cricut and Sure Cuts a Lot program to cut the Happy Birthday phrase from velum (I was hoping the orange would show thru but it's thicker velum than most scrapbook velum so it looks whiter).
Next I did a scrapbook page. My youngest started Kindergarten Wednesday and brought home this great report. It is also done in a monochromatic scheme. Sorry, I don't have a wide scanner nor do I know how to "stitch" two scans together to make one photo. I used a Fiskars punch to create the mat (someone was giving it away at work so I snatched it up LOL) then glued foam dragonflies on a couple of spots that didn't work out right. The fancy border qualifies it for the Scrapmaster's Paradise Finally Friday challenge and the dragonflies qualifies it for the Paper Cutz "It flies" challenge.
Don't forget to check out the rest of the design team - one of us made something extra special.
Thanks for looking, and have a great weekend
