Ahoy There- CCMC #57

Hello Friends!  Welcome to another awesome Colour Me Challenge!  

But before we get right to it, did you see last week's entries!  WOW!  So many amazing cards it was so hard to chose just one.  

This week should be fun and on so challenging as we play with a monochromatic palette.  Here it is:




This week I made a fun card for you with an aquatic theme.  When I see navy I automatically go there.  I dug out this die (that I had yet to use!!!) and I couldn't help but think of fish scales, it reminded me of the book Rainbow Fish.  Consequently, my daughter brought the book home a day or so after I made this card and it was perfect timing.  If you have kids, I recommend this read, it is lovely and a good lesson about sharing and being kind. Back to the card below. The main die is from Stampin' Up!  I like to think of each little
piece as a fish scale, the glitter makes it seem real.  It was fun to assemble them as differing dimensions and with different neutral colors. The sentiment on the tag is from Amuse stamps and the anchor is from Studio Calico.  I hope you likey and I hope you check out this great book. 



NOW...head over to the main blog for the rules and see all the great creations the other ladies made. 

Katie Brooks  (that's me!)

Thank you so much for stopping by today!
