Country View Crafts Challenges - Monochromatic

Happy August,

This month's challenge is 'Monochromatic' chosen by Debs.  Here is my first project for the month:


I rarely create a project using just dies but the new dies from Lisa Horton Crafts makes it very easy to achieve fabulous results.

I have used:

Mirror and Glitter card from my stash

Lisa Horton Crafts Diagonal Square Background Die 

Lisa Horton Crafts Funky Flowers Die set

Lisa Horton Crafts Squiggled Sentiment Dies

I was concerned that sticking to a monochromatic colour scheme at first, but I love my end result.

I hope you have enjoyed joining me today and I hope that I have inspired you to join in with the challenge.  Pop over to the Challenge blog to see the inspiration from the rest of the design team.  

Happy crafting!
