TSG103: Monochromatic Magic

Hello, hello!  I'm hosting this week's There She Goes challenge and I've chosen to challenge you all to make a monochromatic card - yes, I hear the groans already, but this can be fun!  All you need to do is make a card using one or more shades of one color along with one neutral color - then post it on the There She Goes Blog and you can be eligible to win a $5 gift card to the TSG store!  Stop on by the blog and check out all the details.

For my card, I've chosen a light blue color scheme and picked coordinating papers from The Thrift Shop paper pack by October Afternoon.  I'm still laughing as I type this - Technology Bytes is such a witty set and it always has me chuckling to myself.  I'm using the little cell phone and paper pieced it with patterned paper and added a little glaze accents on the buttons.  "Hey, it's Tiger..." SNORT!  All I see in my head when I read that is Tiger's little story of how his wife had to "rescue" him after he backed his SUV into a tree in his yard by bashing in the windows with his golf clubs.  Oh brother.  Let's all be safe out there and practice safe text, huh?  LOL!  The layout is The Sweet Stop's SSS104.

Hope to see you in the challenge this week - deadline to post your link is Monday, April 25!  Thanks so much for stopping by.

    My first glance was at the "safe text" sentiment -- thought, "How cute!" Then, I saw that it was TIGER who was texting -- and heads turned as I erupted with laughter!!!
