{monochromatic} hearts

Since my crafty time is limited, I like to be able to combine challenges.  Especially when 2 of my favorite places are having celebrations this month.   :)  The Paper Variety has turned 1 and My Sketch World is celebrating with a month long ABC Crop.  If I had to do separate challenges I would probably only be able to participate in one celebration and that would break my crafty heart!  Thanks to both Abby & Suzanne from TPV and Lucy from MSW for letting us share our creations!

The fourth challenge at TPV is a Monochromatic Color Challenge and the H Challenge over at MSW is to use 2 hearts (that aren't red) on a card.  For the color challenge I chose cream/beige.  I added a lot of texture by way of embellishments.  This card is a departure for me from my "less is more" style.

The last challenge for the Blogaversary is up today at The Paper Variety.   The ABC Crop goes until the end of the month, with both card and layout challenges.  I almost forgot to add that I used a sketch from Mojo Monday for this card:

  2. This is so pretty Jan!!Love all those tiny embellies!

  3. Hi Jan! OH you should definitely do this style more often, it's ooh la la. I love your less is more style but it's nice to experiment. Have a lovely week Jan!

If you want to be happy, be.
