Kaboodle Doodles Monochrome and many more,

Happy Monday Morning to everyone,
This is the first of some cards I have been making that I can now show you,
I really like this card and I am very happy with it,
The new challenge over at Kaboodle Doodles today is 'MONOCHROME'
and we are being sponsored by BUGABOO stamps,
you should enter as the prize you could win is 7 free digi's of your choice.

and a little plea from me, please, please PLEASE take off word verification, as it takes up so much time when leaving comments.

I used a Bugaboo Digi Image, coloured with my watercolour brown pencils,
the papers I used are from my precious stash of fairy papers, and they are in shades of brown as well, I followed the sketch from Friday Sketchers, did some faux sewing on some of the layers,
torn some of the layers and edged them with distressing ink, added a few brads from my unused stash as well, colour my peel off greeting in brown permanent ink before putting it on my card.
Used a ribbon bow as the stopper on the bottom half of the easel card.

I am also entering this into the following challenges -
PaperPlay - Brown and (my colour is more browns and white)
Sew Many - Easel Card
Rosie D's - Easel Card
Fab 'n' Funky - Metal (see all the brads)
Allsorts - Birthday
Stamp Something - Celebrate (Birthday)
The ABC Challenge - U is for unused stash

Thanks for stopping by,
and for taking the time to leave me a comment,
I love reading them all,
