Clearly Monochromatic - The Pink Elephant


Monday, Monday...There's a reason I LOVE Mondays...It's The Pink Elephant Challenge Day!  This week, we challenge you to use a MONOCHROMATIC color scheme... As you can see, I chose to go with RED; I so love red!  The color RED reminds me of my great-grandmother, Nona Jane, who wore a shade of red each and every day of her adult life...maybe pink, magenta, burgundy, or true red. 


I received my first order from Clearly Besotted recently..and WOW!  What an amazing product line...gorgeous, classic images and sentiments...and lovely coordinating dies!  I wasn't looking for a new favorite stamp company, but I sure found one!

The Clearly Besotted Challenge this week is Seeing Spots ...hence, the fabulous red polka dots on my card:)


Chupa's Sketchbook Saturday Challenge #101 was PERFECT to showcase those gorgeous flowers and leaves with a dotted background!


 I paired up two Clearly Besotted stamp sets and their coordinating dies for my card... Blooming Marvellous and Leafy Accents!  The roses just make me melt, while the leaves are a versatile addition to many floral-themed cards!


Thanks so much for stopping by the stage!
