Monochromatic SU Flower Shop with En Francais

Hey, crafty friends, I am the hostess this week for the Friday Mashup # 149. I decided to lift our spirits from the winter blues by asking for some pretty flowers with an monochromatic theme to mash things up.


I think Holly, our wonderful administrator, subliminally put pink in my mind…I don’t know if you can tell but I covered the En Francais background with vellum- in person- a beautiful soft touch. I paired up the SU Petite Petals with the SU Flower Shop- don’t you think they were just made for each other?

I also played with my photo, too. I added a matte finish to the subtle monochromatic pink…What do you think of it?

  2. Wow, your card is gorgeous Cindy. Love the softness of your card and how you layered the vellum over the background. I think the layered flowers are perfect and so pretty done in pink.

  3. Great challenge this week Cindy! Your card is so soft and feminine. I had no idea you used vellum over the background, so glad you pointed it out, what a great touch!
