Monochrome at Deep Ocean Challenge

Good evening everyone (unless of course it's morning or afternoon when you read this lol).
Today it's time for a new theme over at Deep Ocean Challenge, and this time it's


So just use shades of the same colour.

I used shades of ivory on my card, from almost white through to a yellowish cream, though I have to admit that with the flowers there is of course a small amount of green on my card too, but it's still basically a monochrome card.

Now I don't know about you, but I have been inundated with requests for wedding and anniversary cards just recently, I guess it's wedding season right?
So I snapped up the opportunity to make a wedding card, this one is for a work friend's daughter who is going to a wedding in July and wanted a special card made. I hope she likes it!

Now you may have noticed recently that I have a shiny new DT badge on my blog, because I was approached by the super sweet Michele Roo to join her very talented design team for Michele R Designs. I was so happy to say yes because her papers are just stunning and totally my style :)

What I also love about Micheles paper collections (apart from the fact that being digital you can print just what you need, a real boon when you are short on space like I am!), is that most of them come with extra element sheets. I love these!

The collection that I used on my card today is
Shabby Spring Flowers
and I used the 12 x 12 papers because of the shape of the card I made.
I also used a postcard and tickets from the
Shabby Spring Flowers Elements  Pack 2

I edged everything with Walnut Stain Distress Ink.
I've also used the following goodies from The Ribbon Girl
Hop Rose Bud Cream

I hope you like my card for today, do come and join us over at Deep Ocean Challenge, there's a chance at a lovely prize.

Enjoy the rest of your day wherever you are! :) xx
