LRW - Monochromatic

This weeks challenge for Little Red Wagon is being hosted by Jayne!! She want to see 50 Shades of ??? In other words, she wants monochromatic.

This one was a bit of a challenge for me, although I am really pleased with the results.  After lots of research (.....spending hours on Pinterest for inspiration, lol) I decided I really liked the crisp, clean look of white.  This is what I came up with.....

I used sheer white ribbon with white polka dots and clear bling.  The only colour I added was a think mat and my tag.

I haven't embossed in a very long time either, so I was happy to dust off my machine and pull out my embossing folders (thank you Jayne).

I am excited to see what the other LRW girlfriends have created.  Be sure to check out their blogs and if you are playing along, link up your creation on the Little Red Wagon blog.
