One Stop Craft Challenge- 87 - Monochrome DT Card

Good Morning my Lovelies, Hope you are all having a lovely weekend. It's Saturday morning and guess what? I'm not working this weekend. I'm going to laze around and then later have a BBQ with some friends. I'm really looking forward to it.

It's time for another fab challenge over at One Stop Crafts and this week it was the lovely Itzuvit's turn to set the challenge and she asked us all to make a Monochromatic Card.
I'm just loving these earthy tones and have gone for brown cream & vanilla. Yummy!!!
I've used sweet Tilda and her cupcake, colouring them with my promarkers. The rest of the recipe is below this post.

Our sponsor this week is our very own Shelley from One Stop Card Crafts, she is giving one lucky winner a £10.00 voucher to shop in store. You will have no trouble spending it girls as there are wonderful items to choose from.

Do pop over and have a look at the wonderful creations my fellow DT members have cooked up this week, I can promise you they are outstanding again.

I've taken my lead from a few challenges to complete this card and I'm entering the following challenges:

1. Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge (MMSC61) This week I've followed their fab sketch, but I've turned it on it's side.

2. Totally Tilda Challenge: This is the second week of the challenge and you are allowed four entries in the month. So this is my second entry, the theme is all shades of Chocolate.

3. I love Promarkers Challenge: this week the theme is Distressing. I've distressed the edges of my papers.

4. Creative Card Crew Challenge: are looking for die cuts on your project. I've used scallop dies and swirl dies.

5. Digi Doodle Shop's Best Challenge: Are looking for Texture this week. My lace is my texture element.

6. Allsorts Challenge: Would like to see a heart on your project this week.
