With Love

I took a day off today, just like that ... and what did I do ??? ... spend it in my craft room he he :) aaahhh pure bliss!! Don't want anything else in my life !!

And this is the first card I did ..
it is a scanned image!!!

It was some time since I had done a monochromatic card, and I really love these type of cards, so noticing there were some mono themed challenges at the moment, I decided to do one. I coloured Mae with my promarkers, the papers are from my Basic Pastel Papermania Colossal Paper Pack and this is the the sketch that I followed.



Then I also added a little bit of shimmer and shine for more challenges ...

and these photos I took outside... see the difference..






and I also chose my sentiment and added some other stuff for more challenges :)

So here they are :)

1 - Tuesday Morning Sketches Challenge No 51 - For the SKETCH
2 - The Crafty Pad Challenge No76 - A RECIPE of 1 CIRCLE, 2 RECTANGLES, 3 PAPERS and some RIBBON.. hope I'm ok for this one as I did an oval instead of a circle!
