LSC125 Monochromatic Cards

I have another early post for you today...very early!LOL! I loved this challenge! Mainly b/c of this awesome color combo but I cant take credit for it Julie reneejul1 on SCS posted a card w/this color combo a couple of weeks ago! It instantly went into my faves anxiously awaiting the arrival of my groovy guava paper and ink! Thanks Julie for the fab combo!
Okay so for today's challenge. Mono cards w/no embellies! Okay I can do this I'll just add more layers!!! I used groovy guava for my card base stamped in really rust with the Baroque swirl. I layered a strip of blush blossom and rust for a faux ribbon look not so sure it worked out! The 2nd panel is blush blossom stamped with swirl in rust (stamped off once before stamping on the blush) then the flower in guava and layered on guava cs. The 3rd panel is the baroque image stamped half way I saw this in the gallery and cant remeber who did it but I loved it! The barqoue is stamped in guava and cherish in rust on blush then layered w/rust and guava. All layers are distressed and sponged w/rust.
I love how the colors on this card turned out but Im not so sure about the layout. It may be just a tad late for me!! I may move it around in the morning but the kids were up late tonight so Im hoping they will sleep in so I wanted to go ahead and post. PLUS I was so excited about using these colors as I was laying in bed all the ideas kept popping in my head and I just couldnt sleep. Dont you hate that....that happens to me alot Im laying in bed TRYING to go to sleep and I start thinking of all the things I need to do for the next day like tonight I was thinking of the colors hmmm..what stamp set...OOOHHH I have got to get started on my cards for my class.....did I lock my car?!! You know the drill ladies I know we all do it!
Hope you all have a great weekend if I dont check back in today! Maybe the kids will be good again today for me to get a second card in. Check out my gallery I got 2 cards in for Thursday's challenge. Oh, and here is the link for Julies beautiful card.

#1- Beautiful card idea. Love the colors.
#2 - You know my grands will be up with the crack of dawn and will not take a nap. May be a bad day in the E household today huh?
#3 - Be glad you uploaded when you did, I can not even get the gallery to come up this morning.
