Monochrome Challenge

We have a monochrome challenge at Crafty CardMakers this week and I have made this card for the challenge. 

I used Stampin Up designer paper for the background layers of my card and cut the circles and square with my stitch dies. Once I layered my papers I added a my sentiment , butterfly and flower.  The sentiment and butterfly are both by Tim Holtz.
