You Are the Wind Beneath my Wings

You have to love the sheer simplicity of a monochromatic palette.  This week Squigglefly offers crafters a challenge in just that--make a card with a monochromatic color scheme and use a Squigglefly digi image.  Everyone who plays gets a chance to win free digi's!

So here's my card, using several lovely shades of Pink!  And a bonus perk--it's all leftover from other projects!!  There's some DCWV Luxury patterned paper, K&Co sentiment sticker, even a feather!  The flowers is a handmade that I stickled for extra glitz and the pink frosting border (it does look like cake frosting, doesn't it?) was leftover from a clearance aisle purchase.

The only thing "new" on my card is my Squigglefly image.  This is a cute digi from artist Fawn Palmer called Fairy Pig.  I colored her with my Copics, using just two markers for her body, RV11 and RV00 (and a little green for the leaves in her flower barette).

It's your turn to play!  Have fun with just one color.  Remember, using one color opens up all kinds of possibilities when you think of all the different shades you can get with that one color!!

Seriously, a pig with wings? Is there anything cuter? I think not. :) I love what you've created here Pat. It's just terrific.
