Birthday Card Using Art by Miran Whimsy Stamp Rosella

Hello friends. I hope everyone is doing well.  I know the weather is all over the place right now.  Sunny and hot in Southern CA and cold with ice and snow on the East coast.  It is crazy, isn't it?   We had some wonderful rain on Wednesday; but dry today.  

It is time once again for a new Art by Miran Anything Goes Facebook Challenge; with an option for monochromatic.  I haven't made a monochromatic card on purpose for quite a while. LOL!  My hardest part was trying to find more than one paper to match.  I didn't find any that would work; so I just picked one pretty paper with cardstock and decided to go with it.  These are not my normal colors; but it was a lot of fun working outside my comfort zone for this card.  The card is much prettier in person; but pictures are all we have.  LOL!
