A Friendly Hello

Flourishes has issued their Bring Back Beautiful challenge: Monochromatic
I really loved making my card for this challenge and included a few sets together, just to challenge myself :)

I used Flourishes "Spring Has Sprung", "Swan Lake" and a hello sentiment from "From The Desk Of" I masked most of the images on, colored them in with my Tombows and cut it all out with a Spellbinder Label # 8. I used papers from My Minds Eye and CS from Bazzil. I used my corner rounder to cut scallops in my paper and a EK Success "Swiss Dots" punch for my border. The pearls are from Zva, the ribbons are from my LSS, and the tag plate is from Bo Bunny.

Tombows used: 990, 991, 055, 526, 451, 772, 847, 899, 969, 947, 977, 942, 098 & an Old Olive SU pen.

I have to admit, I was inspired by Maki's Swan card, she recently made. I realized I haven't used that stamp set in a while, so I pulled it out. But I wanted to try something different, so I added the "Spring Has Sprung" image and just had so much fun coloring everything in :)
