SSCB #45 - Monochrome! Part 2

Monochrome is the theme this month for the 
Serendipity Stamps Blog Challenge. We're looking for projects - 
any theme - any occasion with a monochrome  color scheme - 
you can use any color you like - but one color only!  
 Just make sure you include at least one 
Serendipity Stamps image on your design.
Our favorite design will receive our winner blog badge 
and one random winner will receive a $20 discount 
off their next order from Serendipity Stamps.
The deadline is midnight US Eastern Standard Time on
 August 10 to link your project. The winner and our 
next challenge will be posted on August 12.
 I have two cards to show you today.

When I saw this great US Map stamp I knew I wanted to do a line joining
Atlanta and San Francisco! I was born there and have 2 sisters that live there.
This would be a good "miss you" card.

Here is the perfect sentiment for the States stamp!
Finished size is 5" x 3 3/4"

I'm dreaming of FALL after so many days with temperatures in the 90's here in Atlanta!
I paper pieced the leaf with patterned paper to keep this card monochrome.

Finished size is 4 1/4" square.

Check out what the rest of the Design Team made:

I can’t wait for a cool fall as well! Love your first card and like you said it would be perfect to send to your sisters. Love the background too! Love the Maple leaf with quote stamp too!

These are terrific, Miriam! Looks like you & I were on the same page w/ the map. Love your version. And your fall leaf is so pretty. Can't wait for fall!
