Monochromatic Thank You Card

I was involved in a card swap recently and we needed to make a card that was monochromatic (different shades of the same color) and to have bling on it somewhere.  This is the card I came up with.  I used different shades of pink.  I'm not much of a 'everything pink' kind of gal but I really liked the way they turned out.  Simple but nice.

This flower is from the 'Mother's Day Bouquet' Cricut cartridge.  The flowers are cut at 2.75", 3.45", and 4.25".  The center circle is from the same cartridge and cut at 1.25".

I embossed each flower differently to make it more dimensional and just more interesting.  The only place I could think of to put bling on is the center of the flower.  I didn't want it to be too much.


Here is the inside of the card:

I used the My Pink Stampers Everyday Sentiments stamp set.  It's her new 6" x 8" stamp set.  LOVE IT!!!  :)
