Card With Bookmark.

A few of the challenge blogs that I love have monochromatic themes this week. I thought I wouldn't be entering because I've tried those before and not been happy with what I created. Then I thought "That's why they are called CHALLENGE blogs." so I went for it. I'm glad I did. I think these turned out nice, I hope you like them too!
The card -

The inside and the bookmark -

Both together -

For these challenges -
Kaboodle Doodles wants monochromatic.
**EDIT** This is my second time entering, as my first link is no longer showing on the Kaboodle list of entries.
Cowgirls Stampen' Sunday wants black, white and red. They also have a blog hop happening this week. It was the first one I've ever taken part in. What fun! A good way to showcase the digis they offer. Everything from motorcycles to cute animals and kids.
Polka Doodles asks for texture and dimension. They also have a freebie download you can use. I chose not to use it only because I don't need to do a Father's Day card. The freebie is excellent though, so I used it as inspiration for this project. I liked the idea of using circles and strips together.
Stamptacular Sunday has "Lovely as a Tree" theme.
Magical Crafts wants black, white and one other color.
Project Tuesday wants a card with matching bookmark. I was so thrilled when I saw this! I check their blog every week, but never managed to get the chance to enter. This time they asked for something I was already working on! Perfect.

Thanks for looking,

Faye said...

Hiya Farrah. I'm so sorry, but your card got disqualified at Kaboodles after I commented, because of the red, which is why your link is not there. I expect your second attempt will also get removed, but I just wanted to let you know why it's not there. I think your project is absolutely wonderful. x

Fliss said...
