Monopoly


Knowing somewhat of the real rules, making some up as we went, contracting out and building more hotels and houses than were there, and drawing bills upon bills, we'd stay up late playing for hours in the small room. Monopoly was fun when your oldest sister ruled the board (except when we all fought over who got to move the dog piece around and around).

Wow, what a beautiful combination of colors over at the Play Date Cafe Challenge. I went with an elegant well wishes kind of card. I wouldn't have really put these colors together myself, but I rather like the blue band and pops of blue beads amongst the pink spray and silver rub-on background.

Supplies Used:
Cardstock: (White) Office Max

Stamps: (Tag-its #2) PTI
Ink: (Pink) Clear and Simple Stamps
Embellishments: (Rubon) Pink Paislee, (Antique Rose Glimmer Mist Spray) Tattered Angels, (Bashful Blue Silk Ribbon) SU, (Pins, Beads), (Silver Cord) SU

Tools: (Tag Punch) McGill
