Monochromatic Tuesday Throwdown!



Okay, I'm breaking ALL the rules with this card! *chuckle* 

This is for the Tuesday Throwdown challenge this week, to create a monochromatic card. 
I made mine a masculine card, but yes, that is satin ribbon and a bow on there. And yes, I added some butterflies too, and even rounded corners! But hey, butterflies can be male too after all, right? *grin*

All stamps are WPlus9 Designs, from the Woodgrain Silhouettes set.

I love monochromatic cards, and this one is no exception. Join us this week for the Tuesday Throwdown challenge!

Thanks for stopping by,
