{ Impression Obsession Design Team Challenge #6 - Monochromatic }

The challenge is to make a monochromatic card. I received these beautiful papers from a sweet friend Suzanne. A full box of Creative Imaginations and Jenni Bowlin. Thanks Suzanne. I used this beautiful Dandelion stem stamp with Dandelion Seed Background from Impression Obsession. I added little glitter to my dandelions. Have you noticed that I added a border to my photo? Carla posted a great tutorial on her blog. Her photos are always so pretty. Check out what the other DT girls created: Deborah, Laura, Julie and Penny. This next card is not for the challenge just one I had created and not shared. I used Basic Grey Euphoria paper and butterflies from Happiness stamp set. I used a frame from Journaling I stamp set. I only inked the border because I did not want the lines. Look what I saw at the store last week...my own baby frame on the cover of the new special issue by Paper Crafts, Paper Crafting 3 Ways.
