My First Crafty Creations Challenge Card - Challenge #57

This week, I've found a few new challenges to participate in. This submission is for Challenge #57 over at Crafty Creations. No sketch or photo, just instructions:
"... to use all one color on your creations. You can use as many different shades of the color and the images [could] be colored any way you like."
I recently made this card and when I saw this challenge, I thought "Ummm, it could work ... so here it is.

To make this card I've used varying shades of Teal cardstock and a designer paper in a muted shade of teal with white accents. (I'm not in my craftroom right now and the name of the paper escapes me, but I'll check when I get home and update this link tomorrow. To compliment the white in the designer paper, I added very minor bits of white in the form of embellies, ribbon, etc. to allow the card to "pop". The cardstock has been dry-embossed using a Cuttlebug embossing folder, lightly "sponged" with a combination of colors I mixed together to create a "teal" compatible with the cardstock and popped-up with pop dots to give it dimension. The white ribbon is grosgrain ribbon by Offray. The sentiment is a clear stamp by Studio G that once stamped (with that same color combination) I highlighted with Dazzling Diamonds by Stampin' Up. I just love the sparkliness (is that a word ... oh, well now it is ... lol) of Dazzling Diamonds. I attached a flower also from Stampin' Up and in the center of the flower added a brad that -- you got it -- I colored with my same color concoction and then added Dazzling Diamonds. Did I mention, I love the sparklies.

If this card looks familiar, it's because I've also submitted this card for Mojo Monday Challenge #126.

Have a Great Day! and thanks for stopping by ...
