Friday's post a little early

I have another busy day of babysitting my niece and a friend of Annabelle's tomorrow so I thought I would post tomorrow's card, tonight. As I'm continuing on my journey of trying new things I decided to challenge myself with a monochromatic card tonight. I know it isn't exactly a technique but it is something that I totally suck at (just ask my old monthly swap friends about my totally dorky monochromatic card I made last year). Oh and a second challenge for the card...it is square. I never make square cards. It is huge too...5 1/2 x 5 1/2. I colored this adorable Penny Black image this afternoon using gamsol and prismacolor pencils. I just LOVE Penny Black, have I mentioned that before? Anyway, the cs colors I picked are Yoyo Yellow and Barely Banana along with some pattern paper from DCWV. It is pretty simple, but I think it turned out darn cute!
The pearls are the ones from the Target $1 bin. I am so loving them. I only bought 8 packages, I may have to pick up a few more if they have any.
Thanks again for stopping by and sharing your comments. I enjoy each and every one! Have a wonderful evening!

Oh I love it!!! Those colors look great together, and your coloring is awesome. The clay pot draws my attention since it's not yellow and it looks great. I love the flowers with the glitter and the pearls are adorable. Fabulous card Heather!!!! I love Penny black too.

That card is so cute. I'm terrible at yellow...this one looks wonderful. I love those Penny Black stamps, I am going to have to invest in some, or maybe put a request in on the wish rak!!!
