August Magnolia-licious Mono or Black/White Color Challenge

Good morning everyone. It's time for a new Magnolia-licious Color Challenge. This month is hosted by our wonderful Maria. For this color challenge, Maria provided you the following picture and would like to challenge you to make a creation using the color of black & white or a mono color. Remember by joining us, you might be one of the lucky winner to receive a $25.00 gift certificate to shop at Magnolia-licious Store.



Here is my finished card. I haven't use my Sherwood Edwin for a while, so I wanted to pick him for this mono coloring. I also picked one of the Magnolia Sentiments "Happiness be Yours" I had for a while. I am also using this card for some other challenges. Please scroll down to the bottom of this post for the what other challenges.


Here are some closer view of the image & sentiment.
