Dream Valley Challlenge 17 - Monochrome

I love monochrome.....but I don't particularly love purple....But for Dream Valley's Monochrome Challenge, I decided to challenge myself by using Purple and using a 5 x 7 card blank (I do love my square ones). 

This lovely cute image is Party Princess and she's been coloured with Promarkers.  The papers are a Papermania Henbury Lane with a few (normally neglected) items from stash.  I've also used my Cuttlebug embossing foldres for the heart background and the spotty hearts.  I use these folders SOOOO much in my cards, especially lately with the wedding/anniversary orders I've had. 

This fortnight we are sponsored by the fabulous One Stop Card Crafts, so what monochrome project will you come up with.....I can't wait to see!

I would also like to enter the following challenges:
CES Challenge - Totally Gorjuss / Pretty Girls
The ABC Challenge - A is for Anything Goes
Simon Says Stamp - Anything Goes


  1. Fab card, Susie, and i love the cute arrangement of embellies in the top right corner and the embossed hearts. I like my square cards too and find 5x7's a real challenge. CoB
