Tuesday Throwdown - Monochrome!


Hope you've all got a good day planned - my children have gone to their grandparents for a few days so we are taking advantage of our freedom and are off out for dinner and drinks tonight!! Yippeee!

But before all that we have a new launching at Tuesday Throwdown this week.

We had a huge amount of entries last week so thanks to everyone that played along.  This weeks our theme is Monchrome and we have a super sponsor who have very kindly given us some beautiful images to use.

Here's my card, actually this is my second card - my first one was purple and it didn't work out too well! as I cut my last piece of purple card to small and didn't have anymore left!  This image is called cone flowers and butterfly.

How do you like my butterflies - they are from the poundshop!  I bought 3 packs of them each with about 15 different sizes. They've got some glitter on them which is lovely and subtle and I've used my star dust pen to the butterfly and flowers on the image.  When it catches the light it looks fab!

I also love my new punches, I've been using them a lot recently.  They are from Stampin' Up there is a word window punch which is the long oval-ish one and then a modern label punch - they work so nicely together and so handy.

Anyway I do hope you join us this week in our challenge!!  Go on - you know you want to!

I'll be back later to add in some challenges!
