Dynamic Duos: Monochromatics

It's monochromatic week at Dynamic Duos and we are doing lavenders/purples!!


I don't use purples or lavenders much.  I don't have anything against them but they just don't make it onto my cards.  So I struggled a little this week but finally decided a simple friendship card would be perfect!


A True Friend

To add some interest, I glittered the medallion and it has a clear button with a bow...


The layout came from this week's sketch challenge at Create with Connie and Mary.


Be sure to check out the rest of the design team at Dynamic Duos.  As is usual there is quite a variety of amazing cards.  Then pull out your lavenders, go create and link up!  We love to see your work!

Love all the layers Kim. Purple is not usually a big fav of mine but your card looks great!, I love the different shades together. :)

Very pretty monochromatic layers! Thanks for playing with us this week at Create with Connie & Mary!

This looks great to me. Love the sparkly medallion and tag style sentiment. x

I think you have rocked the purple my friend, the pretty sketch looks good with the purple against the white background. The glimmer accents are wonderful too!

Great card, Kim. You've managed those purples well LOL. In the 2 years Concord Crush was current, I think I maybe used 2 sheets. Like you, I don't know why the purples don't feature on my cards.

Gorgeous card, Kim! I love that background paper - so elegant and rich looking! Great details on this, too! Thanks for playing the challenge at Create with Connie and Mary!

Connie said...

Love the cool crisp look to this card! You nailed the monochromatic look! Thanks for playing along with the sketch challenge this week on Create with Connie and Mary!

This is the perfect clean and simple card. Wonderful monochromatic color theme. Thanks for playing the Create with Connie & Mary Challenge this week!

I never thought of myself as a purple lover, but you just might have changed my mind! You've combined just the right amount of color and white space to make a card that really has a "wow" factor. So glad you played along with us this week at Create With Connie and Mary!

Mmmm, I love these colors and can't wait to play. What you've done is really great!

I laughed at your "to add some interest ...!" You silly goose, as if your card wasn't interesting before the darling clear button and bow were added!

Anni said...

Love the pattern paper you chose! Great take on the sketch!
Hugs, Anni

Very pretty, Kim! Love the layout and the fun paper pierced detail. I'm with you on the "purples", although this challenge is making me think about using them more often. Have a great day! :)
