And since I love making cards with only two colors, especially when it's mono chrome, I used this week's colors from the dynamic Dynamic Duos in shades of teal: island indigo and pool party.
For added character and more tealy goodness, I stacked the two colors to make a stripey background paper and then, with a child's Fiskars sciskors, I scalloped the edges on the right- and left-hand sides to mimic the scalloped rim of the flower, except not perfectly like Mother Nature would have done it. That's the endearing qualitivity between handmade cards and computermade or store-bought cards, though, right? Well, that's my excusoning.
Finally, I added some sparkly pen highlights to the flower, stem, and leaves.
