Challenge #134 ANYTHING GOES with optional girly. Click HERE to see all the design team projects and to join in!
For my card, I used Rory's Orchids, which you can purchase HERE. I chose to do a monochromatic colour scheme with just a pop of pink to brighten it up!

I chose similar colours from my stash of card stock and designer paper and cut them into various sizes to give a layered effect. The black piece I cut with a die in my Big Shot, but the rest are just cut with a paper trimmer. The card base is Stampin' Up!'s Whisper White card stock and measures 5 1/2 x 4 1/4.
The lovely flowers are from Petal Lu <--- click to join her FB page and see all the pretties!
I've never actually tried colouring in black and white before. It was quite the challenge but also really fun! It takes the guesswork out of matching colours at least! hehe :) I wanted it to have a little bit of colour, though, so I added the yellow and pink. I have to say I really love how it turned out and will definitely try this technique again!
Thank you so much for popping by! Here's the link again to join in the challenge! I can't wait to see what you come up with!
