Thinking of you .......

I've never done a monochrome card before, so when I seen Just Add Ink's latest theme challenge - Just Add Monochrome I must admit I was nearly going to give it a miss. But, after seeing all the wonderful DT and entrants creations I decided to had to give it a go. After all, that's what challenges are really about, isn't it?? *smile*

It just so happens that Cute Card Thursday's challenge this week is Monochrome too. So I'm entering this card over there as well.

Here's my card -

I've painted a little Champagne Mist on the flowers as well. It's given them a little touch of gold shimmer. Really pretty in real life.

I've had an overwhelming response to my carnation ribbon flowers that you can see here. Stay tuned for my very first tutorial coming soon. *smile*

Thanks for stopping by!

I am so pleased you joined in with the monochromatic challenge at JAI because you did a beautiful job. The mounted centre piece almost looks embeded rather than raised up, so I had to look at it a couple of times. Just love it, well done!
