Monochromatic Butterfly

There is just time for a quick post before the next round of thunder storms rumble through.  I always shut things down and unplug the computer when there is lots of lightning.  It's just safer that way.  Please forgive my lousy photo taking.  I've not had the change to set up the light tent so the pictures come out a bit darker and less clear when taken at night.  I've been redoing my craft studio and changed my other mind about how the cabinets should be set up.  Remind me not to do that again.  :-)  Big chore but it's so worth it!

So, on to the card I made for the Colour Me...! Challenge and the Freshly Made Sketches.  I love being able to combine challenges.  With several birthdays on my calendar, I thought the monochromatic theme would make a beautiful birthday card.  What do you think?

Stamp Sets:  Bloom with Hope (retired), Kinda Eclectic, Swan Lake (Flourishes); Ink:  Mossy Meadow; Card Stock:  Mossy Meadow, Whisper White, Whisper White Thick; Accessories & Tools:  Elegant Butterfly Punch, Banner Punch, Whisper White Baker's Twine, Green Button (from my stash), Pearl Basic Jewels, Dimensionals, Glue Dots, SNAIL Adhesive, Stampin' Trimmer.  All Stampin' Up!® product unless otherwise noted.

    1. Thanks, Antonia! I sometimes forget how pretty a monochromatic color scheme can be.
