Monochrome Magic in Paris

This week's challenge over at Penny Black's Saturday Challenge Week 203 is 'Monochrome Magic'. It would have easier to just use shades of black and grey but I opted to be awkward, as always, and went for greens. Waaaaay out of my comfort zone - I hope the little touches of blue are acceptable for the challenge, I've peeked at other entries and some have touches of other colours:
Sigh, the 'PARIS' lettering on the bunting shows up much better in real life :( The bright sunshine here is washing everything out - including me!

I used:

- 6" x 6" square white card stock

- backing paper from Wild Rose Studio's 'Letters from Paris' paper pack

- Stickeroos from Penny Black's 'Paris Je T'Aime' set - the Paris lettering on the bunting is even included on the set

- bunting punched from SU's 'Certain Celery' card with SU's scalloped pennant punch

- Josy Rose nail heads

Friday Feast's recipe will follow later.



  1. Love the design you created, and also the colors. I think the greens with just a touch of blue are extremely soothing. Makes me think of a cool walk by the Seine! Tx for sharing.

  2. This is gorgeous and I love the bunting....

  3. Oh this is fabulous.

  4. Simply stunning Di, love the greens and the touch of blue just makes it pop. Did you know that there is a sale of stickeroos at the glitterpot 50 % off, sorry didn't want to be an enabler but thought you should know. Hugs, Amanda x

  5. Gorgeous card Di, as usual! I didn't know there was so many variations of stickeroos. When I have some pennies I will have to check them out. At least it's cooler now, we can all feel less feeble and washed out! Enjoy the jubilee weekend! Karen x

  6. WOW - this is a beauty Di. Love it to pieces.
