Crafty sentiments Monochromatic challenge

This is my 2nd post today for my Craft us crazy post please scroll down...
Hey there again peeps! Well nothing but rain here at the moment which really isn't doing the builders any favours in our house when they want to cut a hole in the roof! I guess I will just pray for a little more sunshine next wk!
Todays challenge over at crafty sentiments is monochromatic. I love this sort of a challenge as several different shades of one colour can look so effective on a card or project, here is my interpretation.

I have used this fab Vicky digi from the CS store and chosen to use the colour in purple. My papers are papermania capsule papers again. My lace is from my local market with my satin ribbon coming from stash along with my pearls. My fabulous flowers are from wild orchids along with some roses I won from the fab Brendas candy and my sentiment is waltzingmouse.

I have coloured my image with prisma pencils and have edged in dusty concord. I have followed the sketch this time over at Cupcake crafts for my card.

I also want to enter this into Spoonful of sugars ribbon and bows challenge, stamp somethings pretty papers, do it with digis mono and craft your days away mono challenge.
Don't forget there are some new xmas releases being showcased around the DT blogs next wk, I can't promise to join in them all due to lack of time but I will try!
We hope you can join us for our challenge and pop by to see the other fab DT creations.
Hugs all

Great card below but this is my fave as I love the colours. Monochromatic is such a great look. Can understand why you have stepped down from the Craft Us Crazy, sometimes gets too much especially with commenting too. Marianne x
