Hearts and Flowers

Paige has challenged us at the Cards Blog to make something using monochromatic colors.  I decided to make a hearts and flowers wedding card.  I used shades ranging from the white embossing through cream and soft tan to kraft in the background.  Here is a closer detail picture.


I added lots of flowers and pearls and a pretty pearly flower button. 

Since this has embossing in several places, I'm also entering this into The Shabby Tea Room's challenge this week. 

Supplies:  Hero Arts CG102 Antique Brocade, K5153 Heart Flourish, S4878 Old Letter Writing, CL272 All Occasion Messages, cream and white flowers, pearls, versamark and white embossing powder, Palette Burnt Umber, Memories Artprint brown inks, kraft, tan, and cream cardstocks, nestabilities scalloped heart dies
