Verve Get Your Diva On: Monochromatic

It's time again for another Verve Get Your Diva On Challenge and this month Sankari has challenged us to using a monochromatic color scheme. I actually enjoy working with monochromatic schemes and my favorite one to use is pink.

Here is what I came up with for Sankari's challenge:
I used Blushing Bride and Regal Rose from Stampin' Up!® to create my monochromatic color scheme.

The challenge this week at Stamp R Us is friendship. I made this card with my long-time friend, Joanne in mind. We met each other at work several years ago, instantly hit it off as friends, and worked together for 16 years until I had to leave retail due to Fibromyalgia. Of course we promised to stay in touch and get together as often as possible but life does get in the way and it's been awhile since I've seen her. She's really been on my mind a lot this week so I used the "I've been thinking about you" sentiment from Verve Stamps.

A nice lady whose name is Heather from SCS left a comment on my card in the gallery and said it fit perfectly for a new challenge that started this week at Dolce Stamps and Cards to create a distressed card. I rarely make a card without distressing the edges of at least one piece of paper or using inks to distress the edges so this was right up my alley. Thanks Heather for that tip!

  2. I love your pink, pink and more pink card, Jennipher! It's absolutely beautiful! I'm sure your friend will love it, and the great thing about friends like that is that it doesn't matter how long since you've spoken. When you get together again, it's like you never were apart :)
