Monochromatic

Good morning and a big welcome to Lorraine my newest follower!

Today sees the start of a new challenge at Lexi's Creations and the theme for this challenge is Monochromatic.  I have gone for white and silver:


This was really hard to photo and this is the best I could do.  The sentiment is from Lexi and is available at Fairydust Crafts. I have used an embossing folder on the white card which you can see at the top but I can assure you it is all over!  I used Silver mirri card for the embellishments.  The border die in silver is Spellbinders and below that I have used a Cheery Lynn one in white.  The bow swirl is a Memory Box die and so is the butterfly.  I have made a frame around the sentiment using Spellbinders Decorative Labels Eight.  The heart is a Marianne die and I have put silver mirri card behind it but it doesn't show up too well.

Our sponsor this week is:


Please go over to Lexi's Creations and see what the rest of the fabulous DT have created and why not join in the fun???

Thank you for looking today, take care xx
