Magical Monday Monochromatic Challenge

Katrina challenged us this week to make a monochromatic card for There's Magic In The Air/Paper Cupcakes using our favorite colors going from light to dark.  Well, I totally screwed this one up but I thought it turned out okay so I went ahead and posted it anyway.  As ya all know, my favorite color is purple and NOT yellows and golds. That will teach me not to read the instructions carefully....lol

My card info:
  • Image is from the Afternoon Tea Set by Designer Nina of Paper Cupcakes
  • Colored with Copics
  • Everything else is from my stash
Now hop on over to the challenge blog to see more eye candy for your inspiration and great cards by the DTs.
Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you have the time to leave me a comment so I can come and see what's new with you and your blog.
