Marianne Design Divas Monochrome Challenge

Today is a new challenge on the Marianne Design Divas blog, and this time we would like to see your monochrome creations, with at least 3 products from Marianne Design. Two fabulous prizes and new ladies joining the design team to give a truly international flare!

I have made a card for a baby girl, so of course my monochrome colour is pink! I have used the darling Daisy baby stamp, although colouring on a different ivory card to match in with everything else wasn't as successful as my usual smooth white, but I think it has worked with a shabby look.  Here's my card:

I've covered my base with pretty paper from the Hello Sweet Baby! pack PB7041 then inked the edges.  After that there's more layers of pretty paper then lots of die cut embellishements and a pearl heart and pearl sprays snipped from the CA3109 set.  Here's the rest of the list of MD products I used for my card:

Daisy Baby stamp DDS3301
Text from baby girl clear stamp set CS0890
Vintage scallop lace JU0907
Baby word die LR0217
balloon die PP1401
birds LR0298
heart in centre COL1307
flowers from set COL1323
fronds from set LR0107
seed heads from LR0106

Thank you for stopping by, especially as I'm not blogging so much nowadays.  I have enjoyed my weekend with going to a craft fair in Bodmin on Saturday, having my eldest and his girlfriend to stay Fri/Sat and help out in the garden, then meeting up with my youngest and his family at Trago Mills on Sunday to get some odds and ends for DIY and then back to theirs for a cuppa.  Today I've been giving the wooden garden bench a coat of wood preserver - pooie! stinks a bit and looks like it might need another coat after Mat has been and mended it next weekend.  So life is slowly getting good again, my low-fodmap diet is doing wonders for my shape and weight without me having to count calories or go hungry .. .. just shows how much water my body was storing from all the foods that didn't agree with me!  I did get told off though - for having a giant safety pin taking around 4" off the back of my white cut off trousers, well I only just got them before I started the diet and need to get some use out of them before the end of summer!


  1. A wonderful card Annie, love the paper pack you have chosen, I fear my stash may well be bursting with Marianne goodies as I have recently joined the Cuddly Buddly DT!! So pleased to hear that life is slowly getting good again, sounds like the FODMAP diet is working wonders too and that you will soon be needing a new wardrobe!! xx

  2. Gorgeous card Annie,love your design and die cuts.
    Glad you enjoyed your weekend and trips out.
    Hugs xx
