Great challenge. I used bazzil monochromatic cardstock greens, and made this wallet album. I've made one before at a funshop using a variety of items. Since this was a monochromatic challenge, I only used photos, and green inks. I didn't do a great job on the outside, as my Kitty cat bumped me while I was stamping away.

Coriander, did you use today's "map" for inspiration for this lovely card? BTW, it's monochromatic enough for me. LOL
Cindy, Love the owls. Good choice of color.

Misty, thanks for the link to your gallery. I forget to look there.

Here's my take on the challenge. I stamped the swirls on the card with Versamark ink to give it some texture. The red ribbon doesn't really match in the picture, but in real life, it looks much better!

Do you mean the 1/3/09 map that Cass provided? No, I didn't, but it's funny how similar they are! I had not seen Cass's post yet.

My sister-in-law sent me a card sketch that she created with a flower and whatnot on it, and I tweaked it with a heart, etc.

Thanks for the kind comments!

Lovely cards. Now that I've seen what all of you have made, I think I need to try monochromatic too. They are so lovely.

THIS is where i saw the mono challenge.

Here's mine. (Mono bazzill green, lime greens.. i had the bazzill from a swap that iwas in and i didn't need that much but i wanted to save my 'good stuff' for something and when i found my papers *LOL* and saw the pix, i had to use it for this) :-)

Oh I'm so bad --- I just could not add a bit of red for punch. But, close - right?

Close is more than good enough. It's great. :)
