Bugaboo Monochromatic and Three Buttons Challenge

How I love a Monochromatic look!!  This week's challenge over at Bugaboo is just that!  Don't get me wrong, I also very much love a mish mash of designs and papers but there is something soooo harmonious about monochromatic themes.

For my creation today I've used Flower Girl Tulip.  Isn't she so springy and sweet?  I've colored her with my Copics, Prismacolor and Pantone markers.  I used a bit of this and a bit of that in terms of paper from my ridiculous stash.

My sentiment is from PTI.  Since it didn't fit how I envisioned it, once I stamped it out, I cut it apart, mounted it on individual pieces and added stitching for extra detail.
I added three yellow buttons tied with white linen twine.  I then used bright yellow seam binding for my bow and a small sticker that looks like a postage stamp that I trimmed after I added it to my creation.

Oh and her pink shoes?  Well they just called out to me!!  I figure one tiny bit of pink in a monochromatic sea of golden yellow is ok? ;)

I hope you have a great day and are inspired to create something fabulous!!
