Puddle Lessons

WooHoo - It's a MDS Monday  and Rochelle has a fabulous sketch and one of my favorite types of challenges.....creating a monochromatic project - using tints, tones and shades of a single hue.  I've paired this challenge along with the "Retiring Colours" challenge of the MDS website so I've chosen Bashful Blue and Not Quite Navy as my main colours.  I even used the blues as my drop shadows instead of black.
The striped ribbon has been cropped with a punch, and the lowest layer of "paper" is a photobox filled with DSP so that the edges could be torn.

Here's the sketch....
be sure to link your creation to the MDS Monday Challenge blog. You have until Friday, May 17 at 11:59 EST - 12 full days - to submit your entry.  I look forward to viewing your creations!

Thanks for stopping by today - hope your Monday is Marvelous!

This is awesome, Joan. I love the background and how you've used blue for the drop shadow. I'll have to remember that :)
