Monochrome Birthday - Creative Craft Challenges

Hello :)

Our latest challenge over at Creative Craft Challenges is Monochrome Birthday and we are being sponsored by Some Odd Girl.

I love monochrome ... now that I know what it is LOL!  Isn't it funny that until I started card making (a year ago) I didn't really know what monochrome was.  I have done a few monochrome cards now ... but always using greys or browns.

So a lovely friend of mine challenged me to use green .... so here it is ... this is for you Danie :)

 I am absolutely thrilled with this card!  Lucky me .. I had a Birthday this week (9th August ... a bit ahead with my blog posting) and I was spoilt with some gorgeous craft supplies from my friend Danie.  Including the paper I have used in the background.  It is from a Kaisercraft paper pack called Antique Rose.

I was also very lucky to receive from my DH and gorgeous 3 year old daughter the whole set of Tim Holtz Distress markers!!!!  I have coloured the Sentiment using those.  The sentiment is from Stampin Up and was given to me by another gorgeous friend Shirley.

So this card is very special to me because it wouldn't have been possible without the generosity and thoughtfulness from those nearest and dearest to me.

 How cute is this little image!  She is a digi image called Kiss A Prince Tia and you can find her at the Some Odd Girl Store .. here.

Thank so much for stopping by and reading my lather long post today.  I just wanted to share with you how special my friends, DH and Madalyn are.  

Looking forward to seeing your creations over at the Challenge Blog.
