OWH Design Bootcamp: Basic Color Theory

The Stars and Stamps blog by Operation Write Home has a great tutorial about color theory along with  amazing card samples. These samples exemplify monochromatic, analogous, and complementary color combinations. My card is monochromatic and CAS. I thought about adding pink flowers or a butterfly, then decided to dry emboss the DP and leave as is. The subtle design of the paper and pretty ribbon work for me. This card will also be entered into the Shopping Our Stash Challenge 86: Use Your Oldest Ribbon and The Cheerful Stamp Pad Challenge # 52: Tickled Pink.

And I would be 'tickled pink' if you would be so kind as to take a minute and Join my site! Thank you.

Ribbon: "Holiday Time" Fabric Ribbon from Wal-Mart (never used, very old, it was most likely on sale)
Embossing Folder: Sizzix/Hero Arts and Cuttlebug
Brad: my stash
DP: my stash
Pink CS: Bazzill

NEAT look with the embossed paper! I like it! Thanks for playing along with Boot Camp! You did great!

Sometimes a paper is so pretty, like this one, that it's worthy of a card on it's own. The embossing adds a nice textural dimension too. Nice example of a Monochromatic design! Thanks for sharing it.

Embossed patterned paper is the best! I did the other two color combinations, but not monochrome. I feel the need to add a splash of color. :)
