Wow ladies!! I love all the entries in the monochromatic challenge thus far! I know exactly what I want to do for this but won't be posting until next week :(. I'm heading off to PA for the week to help take care of my mom so no time to craft this week :((. I'll have internet connection though thanks to my DH and some magic thumb drive. So I'll be stalking.

Hey there Charlene!! Love the card! Drop me a line when you get a chance and let me know what's new with you.

How are we adding the tag for the challenge I did not see a place to do that when we upload from here I can do it when I upload from my pictures area.
Comment by Charlene Short on September 27, 2010 at 11:07am

Comment by Lisa (ThePurplePlace) on September 27, 2010 at 9:21am
Charlene and Lisa - Your cards are BOTH wonderful and so much brighter and colorful then my card! Like I wrote below....I think I did something colors and not nearly as nice? :(
Comment by Lisa (ThePurplePlace) on September 27, 2010 at 9:20am
I must have done something wrong? My colors look very bland as compared to everyone else? Suzanne! HELP??

What do I need to do to make my card POP like the others?

Hi everyone here is my entry for the monochromatic challenge. I used E30's, E50's and E9 and E43...had to add a little stickles to her wings. DP is Cosmo Cricket.. Autumn. I made my flower it is a fan fold and had the little center piece in my stash.

not sure where to add the tag for the album

Cute cards ladies--love all the different images & tones I'm seeing! I just got back from a Nationals baseball game and am not feeling so hot--blech. So I'll be answering emails and laying on the couch--so hoping I'm not catching Riley's cold :(
