Monochrome Love

Hi and Happy Day!
The challenge was to make the design monochromatic, or varying shades of just one color. I decided to go out on a limb and make mine all shades of cream, or eggshell, or choose what you think it is. 
Did I do alright? What do you think?

I used hand-made paper that my friend Katie gave to me a few years ago and have never really pulled out. I love how the pieces of twine swirl through the BG paper. Such a cool idea. I used a slightly difference shade for the heart. Sentiment is from the Good News stamp set by Inkadinkado. 

Speaking of handmade paper, stay tuned for a review and some fun projects made from my talented friend Kim's handmade paper! 

Have a lovely day!

I think it is a beautiful card honey. And the sentiment is, of course, wonderful. I do love the balance of the design, and I think it was incredibly smart to use the level of texture that you did since this is monochromatic. The base paper is great and I love the roughness of the bands and ribbon running through it.
