CCT Monochrome

Time for our next challenge on the Cute Card Thursday blog - and this time out we are going monochrome, so all shades of one predominant colour.  As you see, I've gone pink!

Our sponsor for this challenge is Sherri Baldy with My Besties shop - please stop by the CCT blog to read all about it.

I've had a few of my old Nellie's Choice Dawn stamps already inked out waiting in the 'to do' box, so I fished out the Copics and finished the job.  As I'd already started with pink flowers it made sense to continue (I'd started about a year ago) and make a real girly card.  Here it is:

I got a really good price on a pack of 5"x7" cards so decided to use one with a piece of digi paper from Buddly Crafts (from one of the Eline's Baby collections I think) and matted with pink textured card.  Embellishments are simple as I'm still missing half my mojo, but little butterflies and the forget-me-not flowers seemed to do the trick.  A stamped text, little bow, sprinkling of pearls and those pearl hearts from eons ago (still half a packet left) finished the card.

Incy Wincy Designs are after birthday creations this week so here's one from me! And I see that the Fussy and Fancy Friday Birthday challenge still has a week to run so I can enter with them too!

Thank you for stopping by to take a peek - the sun is shining here in Cornwall so I need to tidy up the garden before the next downpour, although the grass is too wet to cut .. .. well that's my excuse!
