Happy Father's Day!!

Today is Father's Day!! I hope all of you are having a great day!! I'll be heading on over to my parent's home to celebrate Father's Day and can't wait to just relax and have fun!!
Well, it's time for a new challenge with Sunday's with Crissy! This challenge will run for a total of 4 weeks, instead of 2weeks. So, this means you will have more time to join us for the fun. This challenge is called Monochromatic Coloring.
I really LOVE this challenge!! It's one of my favorites because all you need is one color with various shades. I've used my copics of course, and colored this cute digital image drawn by Crissy from Wags n' Whiskers called A Good Book. Instead of keeping things to only dark colors, I decided to add some color to only one part of my image ( do you see it?). So, then I decorated the card using pink accessories.
It's one of my most favorite color combos. If you've always wanted to try this technique out, here's your chance! Not only will you be able to try out the technique, but you could also submit a card and win the prize! Thanks for stopping by on this Father's Day!! Have a great one!!

Jodi this looks fantastic! I love grey and pink together too, and I love how you have just a touch of pink. I also love that you used a die that looks like a book, and you have the image outside the edges. What a great idea for this image! It's perfect! I hope you have a wonderful time with you family today!
