Just Add Monochrome

I'm absolutely loving white on white cards at the moment, so, when I saw that the newest Just Add Ink challenge was to just add monochrome, I knew exactly what colour I was going to reach for! I made this card the other night, instead of sleeping... a very stupid move as I had to be up at 630am for a 10hr work day.... but, I love how it turned out, and while the work day was long, it was over quick enough to come home to a roast that my awesome house mate had made!
Now, on to the card!
See those flowers? They were originally pink and blue! I just got out some white paint and painted over them until they were white.... I finally got my sewing machine working enough for this card to have the very wonky stitched border!
