Totally Papercrafts #163

TGIF! This has been a long week and I am *so* glad that it is Friday! I'm also glad to be bringing you a fun Totally Papercrafts challenge this week - Monochromatic. We are being sponsored this week by DigiStamp Boutique. I chose these lovely poppies from the Sketchy Flowers set.

Supplies: Sketchy Flowers (DSB), For Mum digi paper (DSB), diamond dp (Creative Memories), 
ribbon (Michaels), pearls (Recollections), silver cs, 
Aqua Lagoon pearlescent cs (Paper and More) and Copics.

I did include a few bits of accent color (yellow flower centers and a silver mat behind the flowers), but everything else is done in shades of aqua. The floral dp is actually a sort of "happy accident". It's from the "For Mum" digi-paper set and is supposed to be green. However, my color ink is low and it came out this lovely aqua blue instead.

I'm submitting my card into the following challenges:
Shelly's Images - April Showers Bring May FLOWERS
Rhedd and Rosies - Monochrome
Creative Moments - Spring (I'm assuming flowers count as a spring image)
Nutcrafters - Anything Goes

Hop on over to the Totally Papercrafts blog and check out the other DT monochromatic cards. Be sure to play along for a chance to win some digis from our fantastic sponsor, DigiStamp Boutique!
