It’s Farm Fresh Friday at TGF!

Happy Friday, everybody! Thanks to everyone who stopped by and left such lovely comments on my new release blog hop post! I always love reading your comments…you made my day!
It’s time for a new Farm Fresh Friday challenge at The Greeting Farm, and this week, we’ve gone MONOCHROMATIC! 
What does that mean? Basically, you use various shades of only one color (I picked yellow). You can also use a neutral like white to offset the color.

A monochromatic yellow palette might look something like this:

There are lots of variations, of course, but I thought it would help to show an example.
Here’s my card, featuring “Anya Strolls” and TGF’s “Fence Die“:
When I was putting the card together, I thought it needed some white to break up all of the yellow, so I used the “Mini Clouds Die” to bring in a pop of white.
To make the sunbeams, I first drew a pattern on cardstock that was the same size as my main panel on the card. Then I figured out where I wanted the sun to be, and drew rays from the center of the circle to the edge of the panel. I cut along the lines and traced the pieces on to my patterned paper, cut those out, erased the pencil marks, and assembled it like a puzzle.

I added machine stitching along the gingham panels to give the rays extra dimension.

So, what do you need to know to join in our challenge? Here’s the scoop:
