When I think of LOVE, I think of my DH ~ my one-and-only, 'til-the-end-of-time, true blue love. This year we will be celebrating our 20th wedding anniversary!!!

My challenge for you is to celebrate your ONE TRUE LOVE by making a monochromatic card. Your card can use several shades of the same color, and one neutral, too.

Enjoy!!!!

2. You have 45 minutes to complete the challenge.

It is also highly recommended that you post a link to your creation in the chat thread just in case the gallery is being testy.

The image on your black and white card is SO funny. Better go to the other room and see what I can do.

What a challenge. I always struggle with monocromatic. I guess it is time to get out of my comfort zone.

Whew! Luckily I had a Mat Stack with matching paper and cardstock all in one pad. Found a sweet little image.

Now I have time to search my computer ...trying to find out what the heck is wrong with my scanner.
