Less is More Week 18 Colour - Monochrome

This week's challenge at Less is More is colour, but it has to be monochrome, so shades of one colour or  black and white. Not difficult I thought but it's all too easy to forget that it has to be a CAS card as well! I have made 2 cards but I await LIMITIOUS feedback to see if I've succeeded in the challenge:)
The first card is stamped with an Agapanthus stamp from Stampendous using certainly celery and wild wasabi from Stampin up. The sentiment is from my Xyron printer with green vintage ribbon.







My 2nd card is stamped with Mocha Truffle versacolor ink using stamps from Stamp Addicts Da Vinci range. The sentiment is from a celebrations cd.






Thanks for looking:)

2 terrific cards. Green is my fav colour, so I noticed that one first, but I am being drawn to vintage at the moment, so I also love those keys with that elegant background. Very stylish!

The Mocha truffle is devine,the shading makes the keys and background 'pop'. Great colours using celery and wild wasabi as well, they really complement each other
