DT Card for Unstampabelles #17 - Monochromatic

Here we are again on a Monday and the start of another Unstampabelles challenge.
Now this was really a challenge for me as the theme is Monochromatic and not something I have done much of.  Let you in on a little secret this is my second finish of the card.  I was all excited and uploaded my card for the DT to see and then sat admiring suddenly realising I had used a stamped sentiment and stamps on the butterfly wings.  Yes, Unstampabelles.....first and foremost challenge is paper creations with no stamps.  However, I must say I am happier with my corrected version.

To help me with the monochromatic theme I went to my Stampin Up (SU) stash.  I have used Wild Wasbi, and Certainly Celery card stock and design papers from the same colour range.  I cut the papers into 3cm squares and then attached them.  Finally used my new Cheerly Lynn butterfly die.  Firstly I traced around the edge of the die and handcut to create the larger white butterfly for the background.  I ran this butterfly through my SU Lattice embossing folder.  Then used the die to cut out the green butterfly which I ran through my Victoria embossing folder.  Added some bling for the butterflies body and was lucky enough to find a matching green rub-on sentiment in my stash.

So please come over and see the rest of the Design Teams terrific MONOCHROMATIC creations and add yours to our entry list at Unstampabelles.
