The Flower Challenge #22 Monochrome

Hi there friends, I hope your July is going well so far! Ours in the UK has been very hot so far as was June. What a time to give our large swimming pool away lol !

Today I am back to share another DT card with you again, this month over at 'The Flower Challenge' our theme is 'Monochrome'.

So an easy one I think this time, you can use either black,white,grey or one colour or shades of one colour. If in doubt see our blog for more inspiration, some gorgeous cards made by our amazing team again there.

I went with black and white, a combination I love as it always looks so clean and classy to me. Anyway come and have a quick look and see what you think. I made two cards and was going to share the second one as a reminder card but now I have made yet another...happy days!, so showing you two cards today.

I used the new Hero Arts flower stamps and I can honestly say I just love them will be seeing these again very soon ;).....yes I know...must stop buying new's just not gonna happen though is it let's face it lol !!

Enjoy your week whatever you have planned ;)...ours will involve beaches and ice lollies I think ;)

Thinking of You card

Smooth White card 
Hero Arts Floral Mums stamp, die & sentiment
Kaiser craft Woodgrain stamp
Clear Embossing ink

I stamped my woodgrain background in black ink , then I stamped & die cut my flower.
I attached my flower using 3d pads to raise it up a little. Then I stamped and embossed 
my sentiment, and attached it to my card also. A few sequins and was card was complete.

Black and white is definitely classy, Viv, and the flowers you have chosen also give your cards a dramatic feel. I love black and white myself but challenged myself to do something different. I'm working on my reminder card now. If it doesn't work out I think I'll go black and white too.
