The August 10th challenge at Stampin' for the Weekend was monochromatic.   I missed posting for that challenge due to an oversight.  However, I found out that I missed it so it's a real shame that yesterday when I found a note to make a monochromatic card for the 19th I hurried off to get it done.  Hmmm, the fact that the 19th was last week should have been my first clue, the fact that the monochromatic challenge was the one I know I missed might have set off a warning but no, I set done to work, with great purpose to make this card.  Well, I'm glad I did because I like it and I don't think I would have made it if I didn't think I owed it, monochromatic is not usually on my mind. 

So today I had to sit down and make my card for Friday.  I like that one too so if you remember and have the time come back to see it.

Here's the deets:
stamps - Tim Holtz "French Market"
ink - Stampin' Up "Soft Suede"
paper - Stampin' Up "Soft Suede" card stock; My Favorite Things "Hot Fudge" and "Natural" card stock; Stampin' Up "Patterns Stack - Neutrals" DSP
miscellaneous - buttons; hemp twine; bling; My Favorite Things "Eiffel Tower" and "Fishtail Flags" die-namics; Tim Holtz "Symphony" Tissue Tape; gingham ribbon
