Monochromatic Flower card

I was blog hopping tonight through my favourite blogs and saw that over at The Flower Challenge it was a monochromatic theme.  My good blogger friend Betty had made a gorgeous card (HERE) that got my mind churning.  I was in my craft room making a last minute masculine card, but had to wait for glossy accents to dry, so pulled out some Patterned Paper, my favourite Altenew Beautiful Day stamps and some Altenew inks and made this,


I wanted a bold sentiment so pair my flower with a Catherine Pooler Design sentiment.   The Altenew inks, Mountain Mist, Volcano Lake, Lagoon and Emerald matched my PP perfectly. 

Well the packing is 99% done and everything else is in order, roll on Thursday morning (albeit 4.00am) so we can get the show on the road.   Half day tomorrow at work, then afternoon tea with Hubby's niece and her family, over here from Canada followed by an early night.... Excited Much!
