Here is my take.
Coredinations paper embossed card stock using Cuttlebug red Stickles on the roses that look much better in real life than in the photos for some reason Bassil paper Stamp from Stamping Bella Copic markers - all reds and pinks plus colourless blender Pink Ribbon - unknown Pop dots for 3D effect
I only used three different greens in Distress Inks (forest moss, shabby shatters and peeled paint), one colour in archival ink (Fern Green) and two markers (Cottage Ivy and Bamboo leaves).
I free hand cut the branches on my trees, and for the children I used a mask by Andy Skinner, traced it on a different paper and fussy cut it by hand. I included the photo of the mask in my blog post.
I chose to make a stepper card to give it depth as I wanted to show those two friends walking away together.
I embossed the bushes at the bottom of the trees and added the sentiment. There is also a close up photo of the sentiment, so you can see that it is green. I really had a very hard time with the photographs of the card as you can imagine, monochromatic is not a very easy thing to photograph.
I hope you like it! I really had fun making it despite the strict rules of the challenge

My monochromatic zig-zag card in white
I dry embossed the different panels on white cardstock and then used white embossing powder to heat emboss
I used a tiny bit of clear embossing powder to highlight the bird and finished off with a leafy white ribbon and a sheer white ribbon to tie the card together. The chipboard "love" is painted with white paint.

I chose the brown pallette for my card ranging from tan all the way to the dark black walnut of the distress ink. The Effiel tower in the card is popped up from the card in its own shape and not attached to the more traditional rectangle. More detailed photos can be seen on my blog Daring to Dream and Design

This is my take on:
I chose yellow: CS, patterned paper, water colours (to recolour the PP yellow), letters in yellow, flowers, washi tape, yarn (AIDA Col. 300),and a dot. The skulls and crossbones and the stars are cut with the scissors.
