A Monochromatic Garden

I made this card using the same sketch as yesterday for a totally different look. The stamped images are available in Stampin' Up!'s current mini catalog. I found a small piece of silver cord and added that for some sparkle instead of ribbon. I love this Blue Bayou DP - I love all the colors, really, of this paper!

The butterfly has Silver Stickles on her wings. I think there is a little gremlin in my camera that changes the colors because the hardware matches the Bayou color exactly IRL! ;) Here it looks more Brilliant Blue! (That's never happened to anyone else, right?? lol)

Stamps: The Essence of Love
Paper: Not Quite Navy, Blue Bayou, Soft Sky, Blue Bayou DP
Ink: Blue Bayou
Accessories: word window punch, silver cord, CTMH hardware, American Crafts brads, silver Stickles

Later today or tomorrow I promise (!!) that I will try to get my screen door from the craft show uploaded - at least the top of it! My sister keeps asking me "Where is the picture???" Plus, I have a new yummy recipe this afternoon and a Fast Friday card tommorow! If you have been reading my blog very long, you know that I am one of those people who take 60-90 minutes to make my cards! I know that half of that time is probably spent sitting at my desk thinking and rearranging, but still.... so tomorrow will be my first Fast Friday card!
Thanks for coming by!
