DeNami Monochromatic Blog Hop


Welcome to the MONOCHROMATIC DeNami Blog Hop!! You should be arriving from Laurie's amazing blog.  If not, you can start at the beginning of the hop here


I originally wanted to make a Lime Green Monochromatic Card, or even purple.... but somehow I ended up with browns.  Easy to blend lots of different shades of brown together.  I think it turned into a good masculine  Birthday card.  Simple stamping makes for a quick card, I like quick!!  Your next stop along the hop is to visit another DeNami DT girl... Andrea.  Make sure you leave a comment on EVERY blog, you will have the chance to win a $20 Gift Certificate.

Supplies:
Stamps: Solid Decorative Crest, Happy Birthday, Whimsical Oval Frame.
Cardstock: Cream, Kraft, Chocolate Satin.
Misc: Buttons, 5/8 Ribbon, Scalloped Oval Punch, Twine. Versafine Sepia Ink and Caramel ColorBox, Copic Marker.
