Monochromatic card - Kianel

Hello dear Cheery Lynn Designs lovers!
Kianel here with you today for my weekly post and today i am showing you a monochromatic...sort of...card. to make the base of the card, i used the XL square stackers and XL silver square stackers. Papers are Bazzill and MME. Stamp is a Sarah Kay from Stampavie. Colouring is made with distress inks and Creative Inspirations paints. Cheesecloth, lace, ribbon, pearls, charm and stamens from my stash.
 I played with several layers using half of a XL square stackers and half  of a XL silver square stackers. All the dies are covered with ink and then some paints to give them that shimmer look. The stamped image's base is a Cardmaker's stackers, and i also used the Anastasia border on the side.
 Here i used the olive branches die, the dimensionel small leaves set #1 (if you cut this one in a white paper and then covered with dark ink, it just enhances all the beautiful details of thoses leaves)and the Cherry blossoms die.
 As i wanted to give my card a more autumn feeling, i decided to use the garden gate (that i cut the bottom out to fit the space i had) and cut it out in cork. I then took a fanciful flourish and made several bits of it to make it pop up from the gate. I glued small flowers on the gate too and added a leave from the dimensional small leaves set #2. And then i took my dimensional butterflies bundle plate to choose the smallest one that i inked, painted and decorated with pearls (you have many butterflies on that plate and all from the different sizes!!!).
I hope that you will like my card and i would also want to remind you our current challenge this week, which is "red and green" and which gives you the opportunity to win a $20 shopping spree at Cheery Lynn Designs.
Have a nice week, lots of love from France, Kianel.
