Fabulous Florets Monochromatic Thank You Card

I'm not a big fan of monochromatic cards but when I see one that is eye catching I just have to give it a try again.  And then I like monochromatic for that day and sometimes into the next but it doesn't last long.  I love color.  It's so mood setting.  Many times monochromatic cards can leave me feeling glum.   I found this card at Angie's at Chick' n Scratch blog. It caught my eye and I knew I just had to make it.

I love how simple it was to make too.  The edge of the top layer are dry embossed and then sponged.  Just two colors were used here, Very Vanilla card stock and Crumb Cake ink.  The base of the card is a half sheet of Very Vanilla folded in half. 

The image is from the "Fabulous Florets" set and it was stamped using the Crumb Cake ink pad.  I stamped the image once in the middle and then stamped the image again on each side of the first one, all without reinking the image.  It sure did give it a nice effect!  What I like most about this card is that it can be used for many other occasions and events! 

I have made quite a few cards using this set, I know!! I just can't help it.  I really LOVE this set.  I'm just SO into flowers lately.  I think it's because it finally warmed up here now in Minnesota!  I planted my flowers last week.  It was past the danger of frost (we hoped) but it still gets cool at night (which I love).  A few of my flowers are blooming and the rest are growing big and budding so it won't be long until they are open.  I can't wait. In the front of my house I planted black petunias around the parameter of the flower bed and inside of it I planed pink daisies.  It's going to be SO pretty when they come in.  And in the HUGE planter in front of the garage I planted the most beautiful begonias.  I had never planted them before.  That spot gets no sun and these flowers just love that.  I will take a photo of them for you in a week or so when more of the buds open!

But you know, the more I look at this card the more I do like it!

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
