Totally Teal

Happy Day All!
It's time once again for a new challenge at 
Darlene is our hostess this week and she has chosen
as our theme!

I have to admit, there are two kinds of cards I am not good at
one is "guy" cards and the other is "monochromatic".
Don't ask me why, but I think it is my "straight line"!
So did I struggle with this card?
You betcha!
I actually stamped way in advance, added the ribbon and then 
let it sit for about a week and a half, 
trying to decide if I liked it so far..LOL

Well, it was getting down to the wire so to speak, so I persevered on,
ending with what you see here!
The card base is SU Bermuda Bay.
I have a ton of color card stocks 
and I am giving them my best effort to use them!

The background stamp is a Hero Arts.
The ribbon is SU and the flowers are from Michaels.
The butterfly is a very old Stampabilities, it says 1999 on it!!
So, that is how this card came to be!

Now head on over and see the beautiful creations at
"The Sisterhood" that my "sistahs" have to inspire you!

Entering the following challenges:
Addicted To Stamps .... ATG
Crafter's Cafe .... Ribbon/Lace
Crafty Creations .... Seeing Spots...use Dots
Clear It Out ....Mothers Day/Stash Flowers

Nice job on this gorgeous monochromatic card! I'd say you aced it. I love the Bermuda Bay. I mean, if you have to go monochromatic, why not go with a really pretty color? I've seen that HA stamp only once before on a blog and I think it is the most beautiful thing.
