A Timeless Textures and Teeny Tiny Wishes Monochromatic Card

I really wanted to make this into a birthday card but I couldn't find the stamp.  It must have gotten out and is hiding somewhere in my workroom. It will show up, they always do! So I decided I would make this into a pretty Mother's Day card instead. I do want to make another one when I find the birthday image.

For this card I used the last piece of Lost Lagoon I have. I think it's the last piece anyway.  I thought I had said that once before and a couple of pieces showed up. I do have a full package but I don't want to open it.  I will sell it after it retires.  

So, let's talk about this card.  I used Whisper White and Lost Lagoon. I have not made a Monochromatic card in a while.  

I used 4 of the images from the "Timeless Textures" set.  There's 9 images in the set all together. There was one more I wanted to use but I refrained.  I didn't want the card to look too cluttered.  

I die cut the flower using the Botanical Builder Framelits.  I cut it from the Lost Lagoon layer.  I cut it from about the spot where the flower set.  It doesn't matter where it's cut from, it shouldn't show through the Whisper White card stock.  I set the flower in place with a Dimensional and used a small glue dot to set the flower center in place.  

The words are from the "Teeny Tiny Wishes" set.  I normally use the Word Window punch, but it's retiring so I thought I would try to imitate the new punch that replaced it.  I trimmed the ends so they were pointed like in the book.  I do like the punch and it's a must for the "Teeny Tiny Wishes" set.  

Oh and the center of the flower is a retiring candy dot.  I didn't have one in Lost Lagoon so I used a Bermuda Bay one.  Shhhh, don't tell anyone!!!  It blended in well and only those who read this will know it doesn't match exactly.  It's VERY difficult to tell that it is not Lost Lagoon.  

It was a pretty simple and quick card to make!  I do like how it turned out.

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
