Eureka Challenge - Monochrome

I have had out of town guests this week so I have not spent much time on my computer or making cards.  Have you ever had friends that you don't talk to every week or see as often as you would like?  But when you do get to see one another, it's as though you had never been apart.  That's the kind of friends my friends, Wanda and Dennis areThey live in Charlotte, NC.  They even look over my pitiful attempt to show them around the area, which incidentally I know nothing about.  We had a good laugh over that one.  

I must quit rambling and get to my card for the Eureka Stamps Challenge.  Our theme is Monochrome.  I chose yellow as my color.

Card Supplies:
A2 card base
Background Paper - DCWV Lemon Flower Paper Stack
Image - QKR Stampede digi 16220 Bouquet Digistamp. I printed it on yellow paper and shaded it with Tulip Yellow and Gold.
Butterflies - punched with a Martha Stewart punch
Stickles - Flower centers

Don't forget to visit the Eureka Stamp Challenge Blog and look at all the inspiration by the Design Team.  Then enter your monochrome creations to win some digital images.  God Bless You!!!  Peggy

I tore cardstock to make my sand and ocean.
Chalk - Clouds in sky - I'm not sure they show up in the picture.
Promarkers used to color the images:
