PWC266 - Monochromatic

It's time for the new Paper Pretties challenge PWC266.  This week it's monochromatic.  So pick your favorite color and use it.  You can use as many shades of that color as you like, and if you're using an image that's a person you can color the skin and hair in appropriate colors but everything else needs to be in one color.  Of course if you choose to you can make the skin and hair the same color you choose for the rest of the card, think of all those Sesame Street puppets - no one cares that they are blue and green and whatever.  

For my card I'm using one of my favorite characters, Sophia.  She's one of the most popular lines at Paper Pretties.  This set is Surprise Sophia.  It's perfect for a birthday card and since it comes with 4 other sentiments it also works for any celebration.  

Here's the deets:
stamp - Paper Pretties "Surprise Sophia"
ink - Memento "Tuxedo Black" and VersaMagic "Pink Petunia"
paper - Bazzill "Vintage Pink" card stock; Close To My Heart "Chantilly" paper pack
miscellaneous - copics; candy dots; My Favorite Things "Fishtail Flags Stax" and "Oval Stax" die-namics

Here's the challenges:
