No Red or Green

This week we have been asked not to use Red or Green.

I have chosen to take out my village stamp again and the Desert sand Memento Ink
and make a monochromatic card .
Although the card looks white it is a yellow cream and
the DP is yellow cream through almost brown.
Really rich autumn colours in fact.
I have matted it onto milk chocolate and then onto the cream
and just added a gold star.
I am sorry you wont get the benefit of the true colours.
Maybe it is just the simplicity but
I really like it and it is not very often I say that about a card.

52 CCT - Colours.
