My second Monochromatic card!

Good Morning! Whew, I think that I am glad Wednesday is over. So many unexpected things happened yesterday, so really I hope today is going to be a little more quiet.  For my oldest son today is his official last day of classes and then exam week is next week.  My middle son got a concussion and basically his last day of school was May 30 and no finals for him.  Our daughter's last day of school is next Friday!! Bring on summer right....LOL.

Man did I ever love all of the branching out creations this past week.  Some casing just might have to happen.  We are onto challenge #93 at 4 Crafty Chicks this week and our very talented hostess is LEANNE!

 Challenge #93 - Monochromatic

She has an amazing challenge for us and one I struggle with but in the end it must be coming easier because this little baby was whipped up in a 1/2 hour.  WHOOT, WHOOT!! If only you could see my crazy dance.

Here is my creation.  It is made with whisper white card stock, using a stamp from Stampin Up, oval punch, border punch and one of their embossing folders.  The other folders are cuttlebug.  Now my beautiful butterfly was hand made my Lori's auntie Sharon.  She does amazing crocheting. She makes flowers for us too and well she is so talented and has more patience than me to do this delicate stuff.  Thanks Sharon.  I feel it adds a bit of pop to the card.  Hope you think so too.
 I would love to enter my card into Make It Monday - Anything Goes

We have a surprise this week and it is that we have our new Guest Designer Alethea.  She is going to be with us for the month of June and boy is she one talented lady.  My other fellow chicks have fabulous monochromatic cards for you too.  Be sure to stop bye and see Leanne, Lori and Melissa.

Come and join us at 4 Crafty Chicks for another fun challenge, can't wait to see what you have for us this week.

Thanks for stopping in and sharing in my creation this week.
