 It's time for another Team A challenge over on the My Besties challenge blog and the theme is

I have to admit, it's not one of my favourite themes, as I love to use lots of bright colours, but I decided to go for a complete change and went with a grey colour scheme, I ummed and aahhhed over whether or not to have the flesh coloured or monochrome too, and after consulting with my design advisor (my hubby LOL!) decided to go with a totally monochrome look. The digital kit I used for the papers is in shades of pink, grey and black, and it was really difficult to just use the very drab grey papers, instead of the more colourful pink ones, but I think I have fulfilled the challenge criteria.

I think I should have put a coloured background behind the card when taking the photograph, because it looks like a black and white photo (at least I know the grey monochrome scheme was effective LOL!).

Papers and butterfly - Ooh la la digital scrap kit - Just So Scrappy
Fiskars border punch (hardly noticable behind the image and embellishments)
X cut palm punch - Petal - Large and Medium
Cheery Lyn Olive branches die
Silver grey pearls and large crown charm - Meiflower

Pop over to the challenge blog and check out the fabulous inspiration from the rest of my teamies.

Thanks for stopping by,
Colette xx

To go with only grey color tones was a great call! I think this card looks fabulous! So many details and elements, with the use of one color only - that can be quite a challenge, but you really pulled it off with this card!
