Monochromatic and/or Brads Challenge with Heart Song Designs

Coffee of the Day - French Vanilla

Hello! It's a new challenge over at Heart Song Designs - monochromatic and/or brads. I did a bit of both with my card today.

Each month Leah offers a free image for anyone to use for challenges. a Heart Song Designs image is not required for the challenges, but you are welcome to use her freebie or any others in her store. Several cute new ones have just been released, so be sure to stop by to check them out! I love to see new images in the digi stores! :) You have until Sunday to upload your project for a chance to win your choice of 2 images from the Heart Song store.

My project today actually uses the free image from July, the roses in a pitcher digi. I love the simplicity of this one. The roses have smooch spray painted just in the flower centers. The pitcher was sponged with white craft ink to help give it a bit of age. Papers are K & Co. Julliane. I utilized a sketch from the Fetch & Sketch challenge blog. various trims & seam bindings help make up the various elements of the sketch, including a tea tag! I added a little vintage flower cut from some old bit of linen to the top of my brad. just had to have some wonderful little buttons, too!

Please do stop by the Heart Song challenge blog to see the beautiful things made by the Design Team! you will most certainly be inspired! :)
