which is to make a monochromatic card
I have used for this card
My Minds Eye (everyday tango) papers
Image is Tilda coloured in rangers distress inks dress broken china,roses

I used a punch to make flowers and added a gem to centre.

I have done the inside too with my nesties labels and stamped the sentiment with rangers distress ink (broken china) which i have used for all the distressing on the card.
Thats about it better post this quick or will never get it in on time last minute again lol.

Hiya Val,
Happy New Year to you my friend. So sorry I have not been around lately - sooo busy. Glad your leg is on the mend and thank you for your comments on my blog.
I love this card, that paper pleating looks fab - may have to try this myself. Beautiful colours - you should enter this into the challenge at Artful Inkables Think Ink Tuesday challenge which was a monochromatic card.
