Two Posts Today

Our challenge for Pixie Cottage is Monochromatic/ and or the sketch. The team has some lovely inspiration so stop by for a look. You will want to also go to Michelle's Scrapbooking & More for the images and a complete store full of supplies. My favorite color is purple so that is my choice for the theme. I water colored the lily and cut out with the Spellbinder scalloped circle. Stitching, buttons and a little tied ribbon on my new die added for some simple embellies.

Entering Challenges:
House of Gilli: Anything Goes
Pary Time Tuesdays: Something new.. my new buckle die
Stampalot: Monochromatic
The Craft Garden: Monochromatic

The Passionately Artistic linking party starts today so stop by to join in. My project is a prayer journal. I started with a blank book and added the blue background running it thru a script embossing folder with some white washing.

All of the flower petals were stamped
with a bg print then shaped. Thought the big white
beads made fun centers.
Flowers always
need butterflies dont you agree?
A punched border with a MS arches and a little dotted edge.

I used Mona's CR84FN color challenge
