CFC #21 ~Monochromatic!

Hi friends; I have a card to share tonight that I made for the CAS-ual Friday's weekly challenge. Mostly Monochromatic...3 shades of one color PLUS brown is the theme.  My color choice was easy for this one since I've always liked the way robins egg blue and brown looked together. 



I started with  a soft shimmery blue cardstock then added the pretty panel from My Mind's Eye: Hazel 6x6. The strip of sweet blue birds is one I cut from October Afternoon's: Campfire 8x8. The scalloped border die and felt are PTI. I've used sepia ink for the little frame ~ sorry I don't know who this is from; it was is a sale bin quite awhile back for $1.00! The tiny nest also stamped in sepia is Impression Obsession. I'm pleased with the way my monochromatic card turned out...let me know what you think..I do love hearing from you! Goodnight ~Lisa
