So this month on our 
Coloring Down the Lines 
Blog Hop 
we are experimenting with monochromatic designs! 
Sounds easy, but it's a bit more challenging than I thought it would be! Loving the challenge tho!!! It's forcing me to explore all our amazing colors in a new way!!!

Welcome all my friends from Helen's blog! I KNOW her creation was amazing! Now continue on to an equally amazing creation at Lizzie's place!!!! Such talent on this little hop!!!

Here's my card:

So this week we are working with reds!!!!
I have wanted to use this hummingbird from the Picture Perfect stamp set for awhile.  I love the 3-step stamping, and this bird is beautiful.  I haven't used it since the beginning of the summer, but I love it! I think it works well with the reds. Kind of different!

The Woodlands Embossing Folder was used to make it look like the bird was flying in the woods. Kind of a stretch, but you get the idea! lol

The Blossom Punch made the little flowers. I do have the stamp set that coordinates, but I wanted to keep them simple so as not to distract from the hummingbird. 

It's finished off with some Affectionately Yours Washi Tape, some 
Pearl Basic Jewels colored with red Sharpie, and yes, some retired ribbon. Sorry. I need to stock up on some new ribbons! Sad but true!

I know there are pinks on the card, but I consider them a shade of red! Hope you agree! lol The reds used today are Real Red, Pink Pirouette, Blushing Bride, Cherry Cobbler and Flirty Flamingo.

Happy Stampin'!
