The Perfect Sentiment: Monochromatic

It's time once again for another fun challenge over at The Perfect Sentiment! This week we are challenging you to create a card using a monochromatic color scheme. Something along these lines, where you chose a color and just stick with varying shades of it, like this:

And for the "twist", you must have a sentiment (on the front of your card, as always) that lets the person who will receive it know you are thinking of him or her.

Here is the card I have made in hopes of inspiring you to join in on our challenge:




Our sponsor this week is Stitchy Bear Digital Stamps, and will be awarding the winner of our challenge a $10.00 gift certificate!
