Scenes from my Childhood

It's time again for the Design Team from Serendipity Stamps to flex their creative muscles and answer the challenge of the month.

This month's challenge is to create a card that is monochromatic. I have to admit it went against my nature to stick to one family of color throughout my card. I love the use of color and I kept wanting to add just a punch of some other color. I really am drawn to these types of cards when others make them though.

I used two Serendipity Stamps for this card .... Teddy Bear and How Dear to this Heart. I think this teddy is so beautiful. I used to collect teddy bears until they threatened to take over my whole house. So I scaled back and just held on to a few of my favorites. Now it's just stamps that fill every nook and cranny!
