***A Monochromatic card for House Mouse Challenge #80***

Hello again dear Friends! Its Monday and that means its time for a new House Mouse & Friends Monday Challenge. We are to create monotone/monochromatic/monochrome cards.  

So what exactly is the Meaning of  mon·o·chrome you say??It is pronounced [mon-uh-krohm]  and it can be a noun; 
1. a painting or drawing in different shades of a single color.
2. the art or technique of producing such a painting or drawing.
3. the state or condition of being painted, decorated, etc., in shades of a single color.

or it can be an adjective;

4. being or made in the shades of a single color: a blue monochrome seascape.
5. having the images reproduced in tones of gray: monochrome television.
As for creating monochrome projects, I dont do that very well! However, I love to see these styles when others create them. :)  I gave it a go here (not sure if I even got it right), heheh, but an attempt. (I also want to apologize in advance for the low lighting/quality pic here)
