My Monochromatic card for Paper Crafting Journey

Hi crafty friends,

Paper Crafting Journey have a new challenge and this fortnight we want to see monochromatic cards (mostly one colour). I have made my blue card with a gorgeous Hannah Lynn digi and you can find her at Crafts & Me. I have coloured her with copics.

The beautiful blue flourish is from Flourish with a Bling and comes in 9 different colours (the Chloe is a two pack with extra pearls, see below the card).

Flourish with a Bling are a retail store as well as wholesale so you can buy direct from us now! We have some fantastic themed packs (eg. Bling, vintage, fairy garden, boys, princess etc) at amazing prices, you can check them all out by clicking here. If you mention my blog (Lucy) when ordering we will send you a bonus Jasmine laser flourish! This offer won't last too much longer.
