Divas by Design - Challenge 15 : Monochromatic

Hello blogworld

Suppose this isn't too bad, it's only been two days between posts!  I had hoped to post yesterday, but I ended up being busy turning apples into mush to make even more apple jelly.  Hey-ho, such is life - always busy, even if I'm not really doing anything much!

Anyway, enough of me - onto the reason for this post: a new challenge over at Divas by Design.  Can't believe how fast the last two weeks have gone and typing this I was astounded that we are up to the 15th Challenge!  How did that happen!

The challenge this fortnight is Monochromatic, i.e. a colour scheme consisting of only shades of one colour.  We are sponsored by The Digi Garden and the DT were offered the chance to use one of their digi images.  I spent a lovely time wandering around the website, there really are some very cute images there.

I have to admit to being stumped with this one for ages, I've only ever done two mono cards and struggled with those as well!  Anyway I put my little thinking cap on and came up with this card:

Front shot:

Close up of image:

I used:
Digi image from The Digi Garden: Courtney with Flower, coloured with my Promarkers then die-cut and matted onto nestie shapes.
The patterned paper is from a Prima pad: Fairy Flora.
Gems, little flower, ribbon and pearl in the middle of the flower are all from my stuff.
Card blank and sentiment are from Craftwork Cards

So I hope you like and please pop over to the blog to look at the stunning cards my Teamies have made and then join in with the challenge!

Looking forward to visiting all your blogs.

Hi Sarah, such a cute card. Love the green colour. Never made a monochromatic card before. Maybe it is about time I should give that a try!

I can't believe how fast the days are flying by at the moment! Your card is lovely! I love the blues you have added to the shadows in the green... really nice!

Your poor wee girl... colds are such nasty things. I hope she had a nice day at home with Mum and she is feeling better soon : )
