Embossed Monochromatic Greeting Card

One of my team members, Lynn, inspired me to create this card after I saw the one she created at our recent Cards for Australian Troops Workshop.  I love the simplicity of this design and the monochromatic colour-scheme is uncomplicated yet elegant.  Follow the instructions below to create this card in pink or change it up and make it using a different colour.
