Monochromatic Challenge at Guylou's Inimitability

Monochromatic? When I have so many fabulous copic colors?  And so many lovely My Mind's Eye papers?  Well then, I broke out of a box with this challenge, because not only did I do a monochromatic card, I also didn't use any MME papers!  I told you it was coming!!  For this card I used some Jenni Bowlin  and some Making Memories papers.  Now then, if I am using my copics, the only color I could really use for this challenge HAD to be browns, or in Copic talk Earth tones.  :)   For this card I used Mark and Louise are expecting.  I found it hard to not only color one person with the same tones but two?  Luckily there is a wide spectrum in this color family!!
I did a double fold card for this challenge and used somewhat masculine papers.  This card is for a co-worker having a little boy so I thought that the masculine papers would work OK.
These type of cards are so hard to photograph.    So I added a clip to the top just to get a good picture.
The sentiment is from a little Studio G set.  And the crib is an iCling stamp.  Just one of the things I picked up this weekend on my trip to the craft store.  And check out that gorgeous twine I added.
Now the details of the challenge.  Make it Monochromatic and link it up at Guylou's Challenge Blog.  This challenge is going to run until June 16th.   That is lots of time for you to play along with us.  Now head on over and see all the fabulous projects by the design team.
There you go, all earth tones!!  
As you know, Guylou always has prizes for our winners of her fabulous Digi designs, well this challenge we have another sponsor.  
Through The Craftroom Door is offering a one year PDF subscription.  How fun is that?!!

As always, thanks for stopping by and I hope to see you playing this week.
