My card didn't start off monochromatic, but it sure ended up that way. I think it just took on a life of its own...and I went with it! I started off by stamping the birdcage from the "Badges and Banners" stamp set in Delightful Dijon onto a Whisper White scrap and punched it out with the matching Best Badge Punch. I planned to use the tweedy sheet from the Serene Scenery Designer Series Paper Stack, but I just couldn't get it to work. I flipped it over and saw the circles, which led me to emboss the Delightful Dijon card base with the Large Polka Dot Embossing Folder.
I thought the birdcage needed a companion piece, so I stamped the striped badge onto a Whisper White scrap and punched it out with the Best Badge Punch. Then I stamped the "little hello" banner, again in Delightful Dijon onto a Whisper White scrap, and punched it out with the matching Duet Banner Punch.
I arranged the elements on the card and adhered them with Stampin' Dimensionals. This card turned out a little bit funky, but I think I like it!!
