A Life She Loved!

I absolutely love color!  Lately, I seem to be making a lot of monochromatic cards.  I was motivated by this sentiment, and some new card stock that I just purchased.  As I was making it, it just seemed the right thing to do.  All soft with vellum and peach colors.  Oh, and I had to keep it CAS.  I must have gotten bit by a monochromatic bug.  Oh well, here is my card. Let me know what you think of it.
 
I used the new GKD card stock called Peach Bellini.  Sounds delicious! The sheet of vellum was purchase at JoAnn's.  It has the flowers on it, but I colored them from the back with distress markers.  A recent tip from a friend, thanks Sharyn.  I used two dies, the tag is Pretty Pink Posh stitched duo and the other is from Simon Says called Frames. There is a layer of plain vellum over the tag.  Then the sentiment.  Isn't it simply beautiful!  I have had it for awhile, but this is the first time using it.  It is from Taylored Expressions, A life She Loved.  I stamped it with GKD Tomato Soup ink and used her clear embossing powder over the top.  Ribbon and sequins from my stash.
