Monochromatic Part two

Happy Friday! Like I promised, another monochromatic card for the Caardvarks challenge! This one "happened" in minutes during naptime:



I made that fabric rose a while ago and it sat on my desk waiting to be used (little note from my husband who is watching me writing this post: "And there are sitting a lot of things!").
For the leaves I used Core'dinations cardstock, cut them out and distressed them. That beautiful flourish on the background is this stamp from Hero Arts. Pearls are Prima Marketing and the sentiment is from my new favorite Technique Tuesday stamp set.


My husband has a day off (well, not exactly, he'll have to work Saturday night) and we will go to the Zoo with our girl! Can't wait to see her reaction, everytime she sees an animal somewhere she wants to take it :)

I hope your day is wonderful and you have a great start into your weekend! Thanks so much for stopping by and for your sweet words!

Hugs,
Vanessa
