Peachy Keen Stamps Challenge ~ Sketch Challenge 44 with a twist!

Well this week over at Peachy Keen Stamps they are having a challenge using the sketch provided and it must be monochromatic! Wow... Viv this was a good one! I made this card for my best friends daughter who is turning 13! She is having a black and white themed party so I wanted to coordinate her card for her special day! I was thrilled when it said we could use black or white.  I tried all different shades of black and even grey but it looked way to morbid, so I inked up the Kraft paper, that even has black specs in it!SO it isn't white for the birthday girl but cream should work for her card. I hope you enjoy!
I am trying to find the tutorial for this flower! I found it months and months ago.  This wonderful women needs credit!
I found it! Her name is Barb! She is amazing! Here is the link to the tutorial. Click here .
I am also entering this in the Frosted Design Fabulous Friday Challenge. They are having a monochromatic challenge also. Barb who did this awesome tutorial just happens to be the Friday Challenge Coordinator there. Divine Intervention??? Please go check out this blog! Thank You for stopping by~ hope you enjoy!
