Oh No Mono...Actually Monochromatic that is!

Haha...love my title.  I remember in school, way back when, when someone had mono, we referred to is as the "kissing" disease.  Well this card has nothing to with mono, in that since, but monochromatic.  The definition for monochromatic is: paintings, drawings, design, or photographs in one color or shades of one color.  I choose to use blue for an inspiration challange.

Here is my inspiration for the EtsyInspired Challenge.  It comes from the Octavia and Brown shop on Etsy.



And here is my card. On the glass container, it looks like there is a flower at the bottom so I added a flower to my card.
