Monochromatic Challenge at Guylou's!

Happy Friday my friends!!!  It's time for a brandy-new challenge over at Guylou's Inimitability and this week's theme was chosen by the fabulous Guylou herself!  So what theme did Guylou choose for us this time around, you ask?  It's a toughie but a goodie :


My MIL just adopted two kittens that are from the same litter (they are the sweetest little things you've ever seen!).  I wanted to make her a card to Congratulate her on the newest additions to her little family, which she calls her set of twins.  I was talking to her on the phone the morning after their first night home, and she was telling me how she loved hearing the pitter patter of their little feet - her late cat, Midnight, had passed recently and it was super quiet in the house.  Gina and her Furbabies seemed like the most perfect image to use and together with this sentiment from TLC - was even more purrrfect :)  Since I had just recently made her a purple Mother's Day card (that being her most favorite color), I decided on this card, I would go with green as it's her birthstone color and she adores Emeralds. 
So there's my go at Monochromatic!  The challenge runs from today until June 16th at 10 p.m.  Hopefully this has inspired you to get all Mono with your creation and play along with us because the lucky winner of this challenge will be awarded two digistamps of their choice from Guylou's Inimitability Store and will also be invited to be a Guest Designer on an upcoming challenge.  Wait - it gets better !  There's more!!  The lucky winner will also be awarded a one year PDF subscription from Through The Craftroom Door magazine - a value of $17.  Sounds like a challenge worth playing to me!!

    Thanks for the sweet comment on my SSDS project. I wish I loved Scrabble. If you haven't notice I am a bit dyslexic and spelling is work for me. Oh I hope you haven't noticed too much. It makes some people nuts when they see mistakes. I can't wait to see what you make your friend.
