Monochrome Challenge

I thought I would take another try at a Copic Marker challenge.  And here is another one!  This time it was all about using monochromatic colors.  I figure, the more times I try to enter, the better practiced I will get.  I would love to hear your comments of how I am coming along. Please be constructive...I can take it!  The stamp was another designed by me...but...I don't think the company is in business anymore because I can't seem to find it online.  (Blazing Star Stamps) I regret losing contact with so many of these great companies..and it makes me sad that this one in particular can no longer be purchased.  But, I wanted to share her with you anyway. :)

I made the flowers using the Forever Young Cricut cartridge and added lots and lots of bling.  The card is a gatefold card.  This one I cut at:

4¼" x 8½" (scored at 2 1/8" and 6 3/8")

The piece adhered to the top I sort of eyeballed to fit my stamp and the embellishments.

I am still taking submissions for the design team.  I received the stamps today from My Heart Stamps for You that will be sent to the people chosen for my team.  I would love to have you join!  I think it will be a fun experience!

Also...there are a few more days left to enter to win my giveaway.  And, yes!  I will ship it to anyone...anywhere.  All are welcome to participate.  I only ask that you please remember to include a way for me to get hold of you should you be chosen. 

As always...I love your comments.  I read them all and appreciate your encouragement!

Hiya Shelley. What a fantastic card, the image is so striking, particularly because of the colour scheme, and I think you're colouring is spot on. Thank you so much for playing along at Kaboodles. x

Very nice - those flowers work in perfectly and you did a great job with the coloring. Your "starry eyed" girl is so pretty - this card would be perfect to give a teenager for a dance recital.
