Timeless Tuesday...monochromatic


Well this is not my forte (that's like fort...ay but my computor doesn't have those Frenchie marks over letters); however,being the good sport that I am I decided hey why not. I'll give it the old college try & since I went to U of D which is(University of Detroit) and the colors are red & white I did a little college cheer and got started. Using Flourishes Poppy set I created a simple yet mono card. I guess red is not the most popular mono color but who said I had to be popular. Here's my simply Red & white card. Used my Nestie's one of the numbers and a few red blingy stones and done. Gosh I posted yesterday am I going a bit bonkers here???

You created a beautiful mono card with red and white! I just love those poppy images! You made it seem so simple to create, yet I normally spend half a day on a mono card!

I'm cracking up over your frog birthday card from yesterday!! LOL The sentiment inside is hilarious!! Great cards!! :)

Slow Down! I got chores to do and my sister is coming for supper tonight (what was I thinking when I offered to cook?). I can't keep up with daily posts, even if they are classy and elegant like this one. I like that red. And just what did you study at U of D?
