Monochromatic Birthday Wishes

Happy Day, Blogger friends!  It's so much cooler here today and even the birds are happy about it.  They've been singing loudly all morning.  We had some rain last night and it gave everything a badly needed drink of water while cooling us down.  

I'm sharing a card I made a card for two challenges this week - 

Over at StampTV Suzanne Dean is challenging us to create a monochromatic card.  There are some lovely entries in the gallery over there....check them out for some fantastic monochromatic inspiration.

The second challenge I'm entering is over at Card Patterns

The links are here to each challenge if you'd like to play along.

Sketch Patterns

Details:  Stamp is from the set "Dreams" illustrated by Tami Mayberry for Gina K Designs.  BG paper (which has a wonderful linen feel to it) is from DCWV Latte Matstack which I embossed with a CB EF (sorry, I don't know the name but it was a lone branch).  For the layering piece behind the stamped image (which was cut with Nestabilities rectangle die) is another CB folder that I embossed and then cut out free-hand.  I then distressed around the edges of each piece with DI "Lovely Lavender".  The finishing embellishments are MS punches, Liquid Pearls, a hand-crocheted flower, ribbon and paper rose from my stash.

Thanks so much for stopping by - I hope you all have a great day!
