Sisterhood - Monochromatic

Hello my friends! 
It's time for another fun challenge at The Sisterhood of Crafters!

Today's hostess is Micki and our theme is:


Please be sure to pop over to the challenge blog and see the wonderful creations my team mates (Sisters) have created for your inspiration!  Today, I decided to go with my favorite color, PURPLE!  And, have picked up various shades ranging from raspberry to violet to lilac.  What fun!

Unfortunately I was in need of a sympathy card for a friend who just lost her sister so my card theme today needed to be Sympathy.  But, I wanted to keep it on the light, feminine side so went with this pretty rose pattern design paper.  All items used on this card are listed at the bottom of my post.

I hope you'll come join in our challenge fun at The Sisterhood of Crafters and don't forget YOU could be chosen as our STEP SISTER for the month simply by placing 'SS' after your name when participating in our challenges.  We would love to have you sharing creations & inspiration with us!

Here are a few additional challenges I'd like to share in today:

Butterfly Challenge #9 - Monochromatic
Fan-Tastic Tuesday - Anything Goes
Just Inspirational Challenge - Anything Goes
Party Time Tuesday - Anything Goes

Until next time . . .
