Daisy In Monochrome

Good evening Crafters I made this card yesterday and for the first time ever I challenged myself to colour the image in onl black and greys and guess what nothing went in the bin woohoo and for a first attempt I think I am quite pleased with it.The challenge on Sugar Nellies facebook page was to use Black and I think there is plenty here lol.I have used papers from Pink Paisley,promarkers to colour,black pearls from Wild Orchid Craft,Spellbinders fancy tags and a little organza ribbon for the bow.I have followed the sketch from The Sugar Bowl Challenge.Oops almost forgot I used Stickles glitter glue for the flowers and her jean pockets and a random greeting from my stash.
I hope you have all had a great weekend and like my latest creation.

Bearly mine-bring on the bling
