Challenges for the week

Here is my entry for the very first Die Cuts R Us DT Challenge:
This week the challenge is to create a LO/card/project using a Monogram! I thought this was a very cool project for me to try! I also decided to combine it with the Finally Friday Challenge over at SPCC:
This challenge was a Monotone Challenge--create a project using only one color. So, I decided to use the blue family and this is what I came up with!

I guess you could say it was a very MONO day today with these two challenges! LOL If you haven't checked out these challenges, you NEED to! The DCRS challenge is over tonight at midnight and the winner will be announced on Sunday and the next challenge will start Tuesday!

The SPCC challenge is a fun challenge that will help broaden your creativity. There are no prizes, just fun! Don't forget to check out the SPCC Color Combo Challenge while you are there! Great colors, fun and prizes!

  3. Great card Stephanie! The embossing really ties in nicely with the swirls on your S! Thanks for playing with the Finally Friday challenge!

  4. Stephanie...what a wonderful card. Makes me think of a little seaside cottage. Love the distressed blues and white. The Cricut font is so nice. I'm so glad you joined our challenge this week. I look forward to your entry next week.
