Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge # 69...Monochrome


Good morning everyone, weather very foggy here this morning...no real plans to go out so not really a problem. Hubby and Son were out late last night...they did a circuit of the M25 in hubby's MG...they call it the 'Arctic Run' and they drive around the M25 with their soft tops down for charity....I think there were 59 cars participating last night...they didn't get in until 2am this morning so James is still in bed!

We have a new challenge for you over at the Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge today...the theme is MONOCHROME...TONES OF ONE COLOUR + WHITE and the design team have created some beautiful cards if you fancy stopping by and taking a peek!

Here is the recipe for my card....I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

Digi Image : Digi Stamp Boutique (Quirky Flowers)
Design Papers : Sweet Shoppe Designs (Lucky Charms)
& Carol Ann (Gingham & Dotty Papers)

Navy Linen Card Stock : The Papermill Shop
Embellies : Pearls & Ribbon from my Craft Stash!
Tools : X-Cut Flower Punch & MS Border Punch
Sentiment : Created on the PC

Ah, the boys had a night out - cars, nice! Donna, this is the most beautiful card. I love the paper piecing and gingham is a favorite (and polka dots) as I can never get enough. Add floral to that and I'm good to go. I love the double punched lace - looks so stunning. This is a darling card and a floral delight! have a wonderful weekend my friend.
