Monochromatic Flower Card

This is an anomaly for me...a Stamp A Mania card that isn't a southwest card!

I used their Iris #2 (large one) stamp, the Brushed Bird in Flight and the saying Hope Blooms for the card. The background uses their Memory Mists - which make GREAT backgrounds - Eau de Pansy, Blueberry Shake and Lavender Tea for the background. When Cynthia (from Stamp A Mania) showed me how do do this, she said that mixing 3 colors together looks better than 2, and now that I've tried both ways, I must agree. I then stamped using the Cat's Eye chalk ink - Blue Iris, and found a complimentary blue to use as a matt.

It is an easy card and I find the monochromaticness calming.
