Mo's Digital Pencil Blog Hop!

Welcome to Mo's Digital Pencil monthly blog hop! If you came from Maya's blog, you are on the right track. If not, you can start the hope from Mina's blog. Mina (our hostess this month) challenged the Dream Team to make a Monochromatic card. Here is my card.


I really am not sure if my card is monochrome enough. LOL! I tried to match the colors, but had to tug in a bit of neutral in it.


I used the beautiful Fairy Tabia for my card. This is such a pretty and magical image and I love coloring her! The patterned paper is from the yummy Vintage Shabby pad by Tim Holtz and I combined two sentiments from the Find Joy set by Hero Arts to get the sentiment that I wanted.


Today (Feb 17th) is also a sweet blog friend's birthday, so I think this will be perfect for her. Happy Birthday Paula! Hope you have the bestest day! Sorry that this will arrive late, but it's on its way to you! =)

It's time to send you to Debbie's blog. Hope you have fun hopping! =)
