Monochromatic CAS-ual Fridays

How's your week been?
I'm ending my day with a parent/teacher conference so I KNOW I will be looking forward to the weekend. *smile*

But right now it's time for another CAS-ual Friday challenge!
This week's theme is Mostly Monochromatic

Pick three shades of a color and add chocolate brown.
Simple and easy, right?

Green is a healthy, vibrant color and because we drink a lot of raw green smoothies in our house it was a clear choice for me!
And with this fabby flower BG stamp by Stampotique, and a matching sentiment...I was set!
Stampotique is sponsoring us this week and each designer was sent several stamps to work with. (I love this job!)
I was also inspired by their monochromatic green logo!

Cool, huh?
Keeping it clean and simple was the hard part for me this week. 
I wanted to add multitudes of flowers for all those names on the BG stamp, but I restrained myself with three 2-toned cherry blossoms from Wild Orchid Crafts

I hope you'll join us for this week's challenge. One of the highlights of my week is perusing all of your submissions and being inspired, so keep 'em coming!

Thanks for stopping by,
