Lexi's Creations.....Monochromatic

Hi Susan here....

Today over at Lexi's Creations we have a new challenge starting and the theme is -
This can be such an exciting challenge, the main thing is to just use shades of one colour.
Full details of the challenge and the sponsor can be found on the Lexi's Creations Blog. Plus you will find some absolutely amazing inspiration from the Design Team for this challenge.

I hope you can join us this time...
but for now here is my card...

I have chosen shades of pink for my monochromatic card....the backing paper I have had in my stash for ages and is the most beautiful shades of dusky pinks.
The lace is from our local market, but the ribbon I actually snipped off some underwear that I had recently bought and it had two very long lengths of gorgeous deep pink ribbon, too nice to leave on the underwear.
The hearts are a die, and the little butterfly is a punch.

This gorgeous image has been designed by Lexi Lee and is available from Fairy Dust Crafts, it is called 'Molly with Lillies' I love using this image. I have used chalks to colour it and again around the edges of the topper.

This large flower I have made using a die and inks and some plain white card. The rest of the flowers are from Hobby Craft. The leaves are from a punch.

I want to thank you for looking and for all your fabulous comments.
Love and hugs
