Stampin' For The Weekend - Monochrome

Happy Friday and Bank Holiday Weekend!

Hope you've all got something nice planned for the weekend.

Today we have a new challenge over at Stampin' For the Weekend and the theme is monochrome!

We have a fabulous sponsor as always and this fortnight it's Saturated Canary.


I really do love these images and I chose Ellie's Birthday, you should see what my teamies have done - they're just fab!


I've also treated myself to a nice set of new nesties. (I think it's timeless rectangles - I can't be bothered getting up off the sofa to check!!)  Although the large frame doesn't cut very well. I don't know if it's because it faulty or fiddly. I had to use a couple of layers of card to thicken it up a bit and really crank my poor old big shot so if you have any tips / yours works fine feel free to let me know!

I also suspect I'm pushing the boundaries of monochrome with a bit of pink thrown in there - but pink is just a shade of red isn't it! 

I hope you can come and join us!

I'd like to enter my card into the following challenges:

Crafty Ribbons Challenge - Anything Goes
Cute Card Thursday - Tie it Up
Shelly's Images - Show us What You Got

Great card, love the shades of red you have used!
As for your nestie, I have the resplendent rectangles by spellbinder & they are the same in my big shot. I think I'm gonna invest in some new plates & see if that helps!

Thank you for sharing with us at The Perfect Sentiment this week, good luck!
