CES Challenge ~ Monochromatic (My GDT Card)...

Hi all!
It's the beginning of the Easter hols here, and the Children have now broken up from school for 2 wks. So on the plus side I can burn the midnight oil, and craft until the early hours without having the school run to worry about in the morning. We can lounge around in our pj's all morning instead.

It's my second week as guest designer at CES Challenges.
The theme this time is MONOCHROMATIC.

My card is huge! I used a whopping 8x8 cream blank by Craftwork Cards.

The sweet digi image is a Sugar Nellie Adorable called 'Joy', available at Funky Kits. The only colour I added was with an ivory Promarker. I didn't think it needed anything else to fit the monochromatic theme.

The yummy paper is Craftwork Cards Allsorts.
Many Craftwork Cards products can be found at Crafty Emma's Store.

I used my 'Beaded Circle' Nesties from Pink Gem Designs (all Nesties on special at the mo!)
The adorable 'Birthday Wishes' Sentiment stamp is by Pink Gem Designs too.

The leafy punch is Leone 'em Evergreen.

I also added paper flowers, organza ribbon, a ribbon slider, gems and pearls.
Crafty Emma stocks many beautiful finish touches, such as the ribbon slider I've used.

Oh, and I should add, the beautiful butterfly die is by Marianne Designs, but it's a blinkin' pain in the *** to cut in my Wizard!!

I will also enter this into LEXI'S CREATIONS - MONOCHROMATIC

Thanks so much for stopping by!
I'm off to my Sister's hen night later, but will catch up with you all over the next few days.
