Challenge Time- Papertrey Princesses!

I belong to this lovely little group of talented ladies who love PTI.  Its such a wonderful treat to hop over to their blogs each week (day...whatever) and see all the lovely PTI goodness.  This week its my turn to host the challenge... I am so excited.  I have never ever hosted a challenge before.  I wanted it to be something we could all do... so thinking it over my challenge to you is to create a card with a PTI stamp set you bought, and then sadly neglected.   Blow the dust off and get it out... bonus points if you create it using a monochromatic color scheme.  If you are not a PTI princess but still want to play... please join us, I would love to see your creation.  PTI princesses, I am looking forward to seeing your work and I will have a RAK at the end for one lucky participant.

I chose my background basics: stars set.  I never use this set.  I really liked it when I saw all the things the design team did with it... but I havent been so successful.  The majority of the stamps have never seen ink.  So I remedied that today.   I used a monochromatic color scheme with hibiscus burst and sweet blush.  I also used Everyday Classics for the sentiment.  Its my friend Tara's bday today, so this one is for her.  Have fun with the challenge and let me know if you played.

Brilliant Challenge! Wahoo, can't wait to play this weekend.

The hard part will be which neglected set to choose from. I have way too many sets and too little time.

So pretty! I love how you did the flourish on the tag. Very creative.

I just posted mine--I did two cards, because I have more than one neglected set...

Oh I like pink on pink, looks fab! And very nice flourish.
And I like the challenge, I know just the set I need to pull out. Poor thing, it is so sadly neglected . . . and monochrome too . . . I will be thinking about it.
