Whimsy Inspiration Challenge #47

Hi Everyone!!
Time for another Whimsy Inspiration Challenge already! Our theme this week is "Monochromatic!" (i.e. Use any shades of one colour only).
We'd love for you to join us! You don't have to use a Whimsy image, but it would be great if you did! And it doesn't have to be a card - we welcome all paper projects. Don't forget to check out the challenge details - and your chance to be a Guest Designer with us - over at the Whimsy Inspirations Challenge Blog!
Sheesh 'Monochromatic' made me have to think a bit! Not to mention I chose PINK which I hardly ever use! So I went REALLY girly and chose this fun image "Shopping with Rita" by Crissy Armstrong, available from Whimsy Stamps.
I picked out some pink papers from Echo Park "Yours Truly" collection, and then decided Rita would look pretty good in a pink herringbone dress, so paper-pieced one out for her. Then got a little carried away and decided her precious puppy needed to match - with hot-pink diamond studded collar too of course. Yikes! Never let me near pink again!

Hope you like it!

And a close-up of the paper-pieced image...
