CMCC#87 - Colour Me... Monochromatic!

I was eager to do this week's challenge because...well, it was going to be a challenge for me.  You see, I love color...lots of it...and I also tend to not use green.  So it was a bit harder for me to come up with something that I'm satisfied with, but I liked that.  Mossy Meadow really is a pretty shade of green.  It's almost, I don't know...suedy?  Anyway, this is what I came up with.  A pretty card with leaves from the retired "Gently Falling" stamp set & sentiments from the retired "So Very Grateful" set as well as a retired wooden button.  I also used some leftover twine from June's My Paper Pumpkin kit, some Very Vanilla Cardstock as my neutral, and the current In Color Ribbon.  I even took the time to decorate the inside a bit, which I love, but don't always make the time do.  I hope you enjoy my take on the color combo Mossy Meadow + Neutral.  Happy stamping!

And here is the inspiration palette:

  1. You've mastered green and a lack of other colors beautifully :) This is a wonderfully balanced card.

  2. I love the gently falling stamp set! I am glad to see you used it for this card. I love the way you combined the ribbon, linen thread and button as well. A gorgeous look for the sentiment backdrop! Thanks for playing along with the Colour Me design challenge!
