I’m baaaack…from the slopes of Vail, CO…and in one piece. It was BITTERLY cold, but we had so much fun.
Have you been to OWH Boot Camp? They have a wonderful blog post about using color in your cards and layouts.

The card pictured above is a Monochromatic and I am entering it unto their blog.
Card base was painted with OPI Bogota Blackberry nail polish, as was the Butterfly. Scor-Tape was applied to back of ribbon and pinched together to ruffle. (Ribbon was from a box of candy my sister and I shared in Vail). Sentiment from Stampendous was heat embossed with Rose Quartz embossing powder. Pearl hat pin and burgundy seed pearls were added for the antenna.
Thanks for stamping by….

Let's go Shopping:
OPI Bogota Blackberry Nail Polish (to match the ribbon)

The rich, deep blackberry color is beautiful against the crisp white and such a pretty butterfly die cut and ribbon too. This is a great example of how Monochromatic designs can be so sophisticated and elegant. Thanks for sharing!
