Treehouse Thursday Challenge # 057

This week's Treehouse Stamps challenge's theme is Monochromatic. As long as you enter the challenge, you will have a chance to win random draw for $5 gift certificate from the selection of the Treehouse Digital stamps! You have until July14 midnight to enter!!
I thought with the new July release, a school bus card will be perfect for this. Plus, I have never made any monochromatic card in yellow... so here it is.
The fun thing about playing with digital images is that you can print out as many or as small/large as you want. In this case, I decided to re-size the bus to the smaller image and make multiples of them. FUN!
I am sharing my original card here. After taking the photo, I noticed the unwanted smudges on the line and had to make some needed surgery "modifications".
I cut out the smudges...I guess the new version is not too bad after all.

You have one week to complete the challenge. Hope you will join the fun! Here are the DT member's blogs to get you inspired!

In case in you are interested, here's a  little sample video of David's piano quartet in June; they played "A Scott Joplin Rag Rhapsody" (he is the one in far left).
Thanks for stopping by!
