A Monochromatic Paper Crafting Journey

Good Morning to all you lovely people. We have a new challenge starting today over at Paper Crafting Journey which is sponsored by Digital Delights. The theme this time is one of my favourites 'Monochromatic'. There are so many shades of each colour  and we'd love to see what you can come up with in your creations.

The card I've made is for my aunt on her birthday next month so I wanted something a bit special and as I had already used these papers and layout before I knew exactly how I wanted the finished card to look. As I will be making her 2 cards (the other from my Dad) I will be adding another sentiment for either 'Aunt' or 'Sister' when Dad has his say-so. I am so lucky as my Aunt will be 91 this year and my Dad will be 93 in December. They are both such wonderful people and so totally independent still and it really is quite magical when they get together. Anyways here is my card.

Here's what I used
Image - Mo Manning 'A Teacup Fairy' coloured with Promarkers and Stickles added to the wings
Papers - Bearly Mine Designs
Dies - Marianne Creatables LR0143 corner, LR0157 lavender, Cheery Lynn DL112 small butterfly
Stash - Lace, Flowers. Pearls, Sentiment

I shall enter this in the following challenges
Natalie and Amy's challenge 'Monochromatic'
A Little Bit Crafty challenge 'First challenge - Anything Goes' (a brand new monthly challenge)
Stamp and Create challenge 'Use at least 1 die-cut'
Live and Love Crafts challenge 'Let's play Bingo' (I went diagonal - lace/vintage/pearls)
Lexi's Creations challenge 'Use your punches and/or dies'
Passion For Promarkers challenge 'Fantasy'
Simon Says Stamp challenge 'Happy Birthday'
I Love Promarkers challenge 'Your Favourite Colours'
Papertake Weekly challenge 'Anything Goes' (my 2nd entry)
Simon Says Stamp and Show challenge 'Anything Goes' (my 2nd entry)

Thanks for dropping by and I hope you can join in with us at the Paper Crafting Journey challenge this fortnight.
