Monochrome Mania over at Guylou's!

It's time for another challenge over at Guylou's Inimitability. And boy, what a challenge it is! Our wonderful digi team leader and creator came up with this one. I think she really wanted us to have to work or something, because man, it was hard. G has decided that it's time for a monochromic (monochromatic, as I call it) challenge. That means your project must pretty much appear to have all the same color. I chose white. Of course, my picture taking abilities lately pretty much suck, so it looks like white and grey. I promise, the whole card is white. It is just different textures in the papers that throws things off, I think. Oh, wait, I guess you can't decide for yourself unless you see the card. Well, here it is:

The pieces that appear grey are actually white paper with a bit of bling to it. The sparkle around the image comes from stickles, since you can't use any loose glitter when sending cards to the troops. This is the card I put in my first care package to Jessica, to introduce myself as her soldier's angel.

This image is called Gabrielle and I left her uncolored to stay with the white theme. She's mounted on two scalloped ovals cut with my nesties, and then onto a piece of cardstock that I covered with strips of lace.

Now, here's all you have to do to win a wicked cool prize, which includes two free digis of your choice from G's store as well as the opportunity to be a guest designer on an upcoming challenge: make a monochromatic card and upload it to Guylou's Inimitability challenge blog. But wait, there's more!!! This time around, we've got an awesome sponsor, too. In addition to free images and appearing as a guest DT, the winner of this challenge will also get a free one year subscription to Through the Craft Room Door magazine. How awesome is that, and how sweet of them to sponsor Guylou's Inimitability. You have until June 16 at 10:00 p.m. EST to enter the challenge. As always, you improve your chances of winning if you use one of G's images, but it's not mandatory. Again, though, it does give you more chances to win. You can even pick up a freebie if you join her group at CDAC. Come on, give it a shot!!! I can't wait to see what color you choose!
