Monochromatic at The Shabby Tea Room!

Hi there! I hope you had a wonderful weekend! I attended my step-brother's "Big Fat Greek Wedding" this weekend and what a great day it turned out to be! We had so much fun!

Monday means it's time for a new challenge at The Shabby Tea Room! This week our theme is Monochromatic and Sheri has given us this beautfiul inspiration for our card or project. You need to use one color and a neutral for this challenge. Our sponsor is The Beary Scrap! Here's my card...

I chose to use purple as my color and layered up some cardstock with this beautiful embossed and lilac printed velum. I used the Spellbinders Parisian Motifs set to cut my base for my circle sentiment from the Spring Letter Seals rubber stamp set by Raindrop Echo Designs at Whimsy Stamps! I used a few Copics to color the butterflies and added a shabby little bow with Lilac Lace vintage seam binding from Deb's Simple Treasures Etsy Shop! A few pearl flourishes were colored with a Copic to match too! This lace butterfly is the perfect finishing touch!
