MFT May Creative Challenge!

Hi there!!  I am here with my first creative challenge for MFT!  I ALMOST didn't sign up because the challenge freaked me out and I didn't think I'd be able to complete it!  But I did and I LOVE my card!!

Here are some details about the challenge from MFT:

In 2011, MFT is working harder than ever to inspire you, and we have come up with something we think you'll really enjoy. Our Design Team Creative Challenge is a new monthly feature, where we challenge our design team to explore their creative side using a specific theme, product or technique.
 
This month, Eva and Arlene have challenged us to give monochromatic coloring a try! Visit Kim's Blog for a full list of designers that have taken up the challenge!
 
Here's my card:
 
 
I colored my Being Cute Is What I Do PI image (currently being restocked) with Prismacolor Pencils, Gamsol and a blending stump.  It has been forever since I broke out my Prisma pencils but I had so much fun playing around and trying to remember how to use them!  It's not perfectly colored, but I really love how it looks!  
 
I used a few different patterned paper lines for my card:  My Mind's Eye, Basic Grey and LilyBee Designs.  I also used my fave Die-namics Pretty Posies Dies and the new to me Die-namics Dizzy Border.  Some Cappucino Twine with a button, machine stitching and a sentiment flag finish it off!
 
 
 
Thanks for stopping by!
