Phindy's Place Friday Challenge..."Monochromatic"

My 2nd post for the day, and I have a card to share with you that uses ONLY shades of blue.  This weeks challenge over at Phindy's Place is to create a Monochromatic card or project.  It was fun working with only one color.  I hope you'll give it a try, and play along with us.

This is what I came up with using Easter Bonnet from Phindy's Place Digi Shop. 

Everything was colored with Copics, including the embossed white paper.  I have added some crystal stickles to the bonnet on one of the birds, and some baby blue stickles to my punched flowers.  I have used the "Old Swedish Lace" die on this card, as well as some stitching where I used my brand new Sew Easy tool.  It takes time to actually hand sew the border, but I LOVE the outcome.  So it's definitely worth the time it took.  =)

Thanks for stopping by, and checking out my Monochromatic card for the Phindy's Place Challenge this week.  I hope to see you there!  =)
