Monochrome


I've hardly made a card the last few weeks and possibly starting with a DT card isn't the best one to start with but lucky for me Mo's image of Baby in a Suit saves it from being a totally failure. The card is for this weeks challenge of Monochrome on Everybody Art Challenge.
Not sure on the papers they were loose in my card box and the sketch I've used is from Sketch Saturday.
Very little in the way of embellishments, I've used a doily die for the Woodware Sentiment but I don't know where is from its a white die could be Joy or Marianne.
My corners are La La Land and now my Quickutz one is damaged this is now my number one favourite corner die.
Buttons from my Stash but I wish I decided to use them before I stuck everything down on the card that way it would of been easier to sew them on the page rather than threading and tie-ing a knot underneath.
I do hope you can join us this week on Everybody Art Challenge and do pop over and check out the team.
Hubby has asked for another Retirement card, I knew it was a mistake making one previously but I coloured the images I will be using last night.

Awww he is so cute, love the colours. I have never sewn my buttons onto the paper, good idea though. I think the white die will be Marianne as I have a rectangular one x

The image is adorable Debby and the papers work beautifully. I do love tones of blue, and the dies, ribbon and buttons are just right, and the idea of placing the sentiment like that is a wonderful design feature. x
