Peachy Keen Guest Designer Week 3: Day 2

Good morning all my sweet friends this is Erika from CricutLove again!
I am still smiling ear to ear  because today is day 2 of my Guest week!

And it is Tuesday Sketch Challenge day here and  this time with a twist the twist is to use a monochromatic color scheme!


This definitely was a challenge for me I was like mono what lol! I finally figured it out and had so much fun making this card for my Hubby!
Well this card is funny because he HATES peas, but when I was pregnant with our first baby I was craving peas like no one's business!  He had no choice but to eat them or starve {haha} so now whenever I make them he always reminds me that he ate enough peas to last him a life time those nine months!
Inside of my card I added another little pea cause they are so cute!
Materials used:
  • George cartridge {card was cut @ 5.5in; inner square cut @ 4in}
  • Peachy Keen Princess Face assortment
  • tria markers
  • sizzix embossing folder {cuttlebug}
  • White Jelly Roll Pen
  • Chalk
  • Ribbon {from walmart}
  • Paper is from walmart {can't remember the brand it is old}
  • pop dots {for peas}
  • Once again I did the sentiment on my computer because I could not find a stamp that had the right words :) 
Don't forget that I am giving away {courtesy of PKS} the New Year's Face assortment
In order to win these you must
