Monochromatic card

The card I have to share with you today was very fun to create!  I started off a little differently than usual, knowing that I wanted to use my favorite color.  Instead of using cardstock as the base, I grabbed a piece of thick patterned paper.  Then I used a scrap of lighter blue paper toward the bottom as an accent.

I cut the flower and shadow from the Storybook Cricut cartridge.  The flower was too big to go through my Xyron, so I went old school and poured out some white glue and rubbed it on with my fingers, Kindergarten style.  Then I poured the glitter over it and smushed it all on.  Once the glue was dried, I adhered it to the shadow and then onto the card.  I used a stamp from Jaded Blossom's Picture This stamp set and some pearls up in the top corner to balance it out.

This card is being entered into the following challenges:
