Sparkle N Sprinkle Monochromatic Blog Hop

Welcome to the Sparkle N Sprinkle
 Monochromatic Blog Hop!!!

This hop features cards with Monochromatic colors!

If you arrived here by way of Marie Berquist's inspiring blog, 
you're in the right place!!!
If not, you may want to start back at the beginning so that you 
don't miss anything.   wwww.sparklensprinkle.com/blog 
The Blog hop list is listed at the end of my post.
Did I mention prizes???

To win one of the six prizes, leave a comment on each and every blog thru-out the hop.
There are four days to comment (Feb 14 - Feb 17)- so if you get distracted by life - you can just pick up where you left off.
Three of the prizes are "hidden" on 3 different mystery designer blogs.  Even the designers don't know who has the prizes on their blogs - so don't miss any.
Leaving a heartfelt comment inspires, motivates and brings happiness to each designer!
For those who have hopped with us in the past, the heartfelt sharing you left on our blogs also touched our hearts!

For my card today, I chose to use a digital image.  The image is called "Daisy Chain". Here is my card:
The directions for making my card can be found HERE. But to sum it up, I printed out my image and colored it in using copics.  I then used a die to cut out my colored image and for the mat.  I used a border punch for the strip and I added some ribbon, a bow and some flowers. For the finishing touch, I added some pearls.
A closer peek at my colored image:


Thank you for stopping in today to check out my creation.

Now it's time to hop on over to the ever talented Julie Zippel to see what she has designed to inspire your card making.

What a wonderful old time or antique feel to this card with all the shades of brown. It's almost like looking at a sepia image from days gone by! (Perfect use for the brown flowers too - I never know what to do with mine (besides fall); so I'm going to have to remember this!) Lovely card!
