OK, maybe I don't understand the concept of monochromatic . . . I thought and continue to think it is ok to use white with this theme. Have I been wrong all this time? Anyway, I participated in a monochromatic card swap and made this card in lots of different colors, starting with brown and ending with silver (I think I ended up with about 7 cards). Along the way, I didn't like the outcome of each finished card, but I really liked the way this one came out. I can't use it because I used white paper for the BG. So, back to the drawing board! Since I liked it so much, and I rarely am happy with my own work, I decided to use it as a birthday card for my sister, Eva. On the inside of the card I wrote ". . . wishes for a very happy birthday." I had originally left the tag blank so that the recipient for the swap could write in their own sentiment. Besides, during this time of year, I think EVERYONE needs warm wishes for anything! :) I hope you're keeping warm!

Supplies: Cardstock; TAC stamp and tag; brads and rhinestones; Stampin' Up silver cord; jewelry bead; Colorbox quicksilver ink; Ranger embossing powder; glitter

  4. Love the card!!! I really like the silver and white together.
    Hope you're warm, it's 14 degrees and snowing here today---bbbbrrrrrrr.......

  5. We just had a monochromatic ATC swap on my craft forum. Achromatic is black and white - monochromatic is different shades of the SAME colour apparently. Well, you live and learn! This is a gorgeous card - winter magic! Lol x

  6. Such a gorgeous card!! Love the silver distressing! TFS!! :)
