May SOTC--Blessings

This is a card that I made for our monthly SOTC—Sisterhood of the Traveling Cards--Swap on SCS.  April was our hostess for May.  Here is her challenge:

This month's theme is Monochromatic May! Your card can be for any occasion, but it should be all one color family! I tend to have a problem making cards like this, so I would love some inspiration from my Sistahs!

I like making monochromatic cards and I seem to have many shades of green in my stash.  It also was the school color of WHS—the school I retired from a few years ago.  I also chose a stamp that reflects my thoughts of this wonderful group of women that I chat with on SCS—they are a Blessing!
