House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge #80-Monochromatic



Welcome to House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge #80-Monochromatic.

Now...this was a hard one for me...I know, I know, that is what a challenge is all about.
Suppose to make you grow as a stamper right? Well, I thought and thought and then thought some  more...(hmmm sounds like Winnie the Pooh huh?)
I think I had myself so worked up over this, I waited until the last minute to make it so I wouldn't stress over the finished card.  In the end, I liked what I made, but it was not the red creation I had dreamed about...maybe next time I will be a little braver LOL!

I found this fun little fabric quilt piece called a  yoyo (I think) at a garage sale...all made up and ready to use, how lucky for me! I added a Queen and Co. antiquey-ish brad though the center for a neat look. I also used the Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge #88.

Now come on...be brave...you can do it...go take a peek at this week's inspiration and join in!
