Monochromatic Whoopsi Daisy!

Good morning lovely blog peeps!
Here I am with my DT card for the brand new challenge over at 
This fortnight, the theme is Monochromatic.

As you can see I have gone for shades & tones of brown.
The only deviation from brown is a tiny touch of blush on the skin tones!

I have used the fabby sketch 

for the basic layout of my card sadly I missed that challenge!

The image I have used is from our sponsor
I used a comb of FlexMarkers & ProMarkers to bring them to life.
I used a Nestie to cut them out &  inked with Old Paper distress ink.

I added a seam binding double bow & also a button with a length of 
seam binding threaded through & tied in a knot.

the sentiment ticket is from My Grafico
The papers are from First Edition

Here's a last little look!
Thanks so mch for stopping by!
I hope you can join in our challenge this time!
