More Cards for The Paper Variety Blogiversary!

The Paper Variety is having a big party for their one year blog anniversary! Every day is a new challenge. Today's challenge was to create a monochromatic project. I REALLY struggle with monochromatic challenges. But I love playing along with TPV so I decided to make an attempt with a card.
I started off by opening up my inspiration file and found a card I saw posted a long time ago on the Jillibean Soup blog.
I was also inspired by some of their embellies that I am to cheap to buy, but think I can make! ;-) So I glued some yarn in a circle pattern to a piece of paper, layered it on top of a piece of felt, on top of a couple scalloped netting circles and topped it off with a button.

TPV challenge yesterday was to create a project using your favorite photos. I have a couple favorite photos. I recently read that this Sunday is Grandparents Day! What? Yes...I need to mark this on next years calendar so I can better prepare for it. I decided to make some quick cards for the Grandparents.
I made 4, each one different.
But these two were some of my favorite photos. I used a sketch from Cardablities for these cards!

Now those who know me well, know I love to garage sale. I was able to go out all by myself today! And I LOVED every minute of it! :-) I was able to pick up two Christmas presents for Peyton! :-) A killer deal for a friend. And this frame for $3:
Pardon the clutter behind the photo. I am still in the process of cleaning the garage. I cleaned it up and spray painted it! I'm now waiting for Chris to get back so I can have two extra hands to put my poster in it! The poster had been rolled for at least 8 years, so its hard to handle. Check back soon to see me finished product!

Love these cards. I made a similar embellishment to yours, but have yet to use it. Yours works wonderfully!
