Monochrome - Milk Coffee DT

Good morning my darlings,

It's that time again, where I get to share the latest of my Milk Coffee DT makes with you! And this fortnight, the theme is Monochrome.

Now, I love making monochrome cards, but I do seem to always end up reverting to the same colour palette. Hey, it works, and I like it, so it's all good, no?

Anyways, I used the image "Vintage Baby Carriage", pulled out a lovely vintage sheet of paper from Crafty Bitz and came up with this design:

I also used some WOC flowers, liquid pearls and pearls from Hobby House and made up the word "baby" with letter stickers from Grace Taylor (finally figured out where they were from!). The lace I've had for quite a long time and came from a local habby.

So, there you have my monochrome make. Be sure to go see the rest of the DT's makes, as they have prepared some gorgeous examples for you in so many lovely colours!

Hope you'll join us this challenge!

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

Paper pretties: Monochromatic
Country view crafts - Monochrome
Digi Galore - Monochrome
Fussy and Fancy Friday challenge - Monochromatic

Have a fantastic day!

Hey Sammy if it works why change it? and this definitely works. This is definitely what I class as monochromatic, I love it. I am with you on the Tim Holtz and nice Papers thing too! Thank you for entering our Fussy and Fancy Challenge.
