My Card for the Fussy and Fancy Friday Challenge

Good morning everyone! I've made a monochromatic card for the Fussy and Fancy Friday Challenge. I thought I sort of knew what a monochromatic color scheme should be, but I did a bit of research to make sure I had it right. In the process, I found this really helpful color scheme chooser web site:

I chose the base color that I wanted (brown) and the chose the monochromatic color scheme option, and it came up with this:

I was a little surprised at the range! How did that pinky color get in there? But then I thought, what is brown but a really, really, really dark pink? So, anyway, I went through my stash and found some colors that matched fairly well from my new My Mind's Eye paper stack. The stamp is from the Whiff of Joy Spring Kit, Birdie Love. I used my Martha Stewart arch edge punch and leaf punches and my Spellbinders circle dies. Also I used my new Cuttlebug Roses embossing folder (love that thing!--here's where I found it on this side of the pond.) The ribbon, pearls and butterfly came from the blog candy I won from Lena Katrine's blog. And the flowers are from Wild Orchid. So, here it is! It was really fun to make, and I learned something new, too! Thanks Fussy and Fancy ladies! I've got DD Greta hooked on the color palette chooser thingy, so who know what she'll come up with! Have a wonderful day! Lisa

*** Update! Greta did in fact use the color palatte chooser thingy, and came up with a pretty card! Won't you go have a look-see?! Greta's Blog  Lisa :-) ***
