A Card for the Aurora Wings Monotone Challenge

Good Afternoon Crafters, well I hope you are looking forward to the weekend, I would be happy if the weather improves its so changeable at the moment, yesterday was fabulous and today its pouring of rain and its quite chilly, roll on Summer and hopefully a nicer one that last years.
Todays card is for Aurora Wings "Monotone" Challenge and I have used this "Easter Lily" image though I have decided to use it as a Madonna Lily as this is one of my most favourite flowers, I love to buy a bunch from the supermarket and have them in my front room the smell is just heavenly as they come out. Anyway to get back to my card I have colored the image with my copic pens and then used on of my Nestabilitie Dies to cut it out and a larger one for the mount.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of green card and the papers are from Sweetshoppes "Cool Colours" collection, and as this is a monotone card I have used tones of green and one of grey/white.
I have layered it up as you can see with the lighter green for my first mount and then the darker one on top and a grey/white one for the third layer. The mounted image was then placed in the center and the sentiment is one from my stash and placed in the bottom right hand corner.
This Card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
