Pretty in Pink.....

Hello dear blogging friends: The new challenge over at THE FLOWER CHALLENGE is all about MONOCHROME, you can use any color and the shades of that color on your cards, you can use black or white as an option and to stamp your sentiment.
Anywho, here is my card for the challenge, I hope it inspires you to create a card using perhaps your favorite color and join my teammates and me in the gallery.

This image is from a Power Poppy set called Countryside Bouquet Delux and I chose to use all kinds of pink shades on it. I saw THIS VIDEO on Pinterest and decided to kind of CASE the card, which is really beautiful. I added a few highlights and shading with a couple of Prismacolor pencils and a few Rhine Stones for bling, the corner die cuts, I found a piece of ribbon, that happens to look exactly as the colors of distress inks I used for the card in a bag where I save the last pieces from the spools, the sentiment was a leftover from another card, the pattern paper is from a discontinued line from Lili of the Valley.


This is how the INSIDE of my card looks like.

The images and sentiment are from the same set.

I hope this card will inspire you to come and play along with us at THE FLOWER CHALLENGE, for more inspiration, please stop by the challenge to check out my awesome teammates' beautiful cards and check out their blogs to find out how they created them.
