Evie meets monotone!!!

I got my sweet Evie stamp from Tickled Pink Stamps yesterday and even though I am dying with the flu and bronchitis I just had to ink her up.
Now I have been seeing lots of images coloured in monotone, and amm loving them and have to admit i have been too scared to try it.
But last night...i bit the bullet!!!  And I have to say it wasnt anywhere near as daunting or scary as I thought it would be.  I'm a bit chuffed with myself actually.  Quite like how it turned out for my first attempt!!!
I am going to enter my card into the challenge at Tickled Pink Monthly challenge as I have used their sketch.

Evie is coloured with copics.  i have used W7, 5, 3 and 1.
paper and cardstock is SU.
Flowers are from Bizzy Bec's
Corners were done with a Martha Stewart corner punch.

tell me what do you think....

A friend asked me to make her a sympathy card for a dear friend of hers that she had been friends with since they were about 5.  So many many years.  Her mother had just unexpectedly passed away.
wow I kind of struggle with this one.  wasnt really sure if i could pull it off.
This is what i came up with.  What do you think??  Would really love to know as I have been asked to make sympathy cards before but kind of always got out of it.

Its time for a July competition

Over at Bizzy Bec's!  The theme this month is PEARLS and SWIRLS!!
How much easier can it get??  And who doesnt like a bit of swirly and pearly action on a gorgeous creation!!
So I expect to see lots and lots of entries from you all!!

If you have purchased from the store before then you are able to enter. Bec has installed Mr Linky to her July Competition page which you can find at the bottom, so please link your card to that. If you dont have a blog to post your card on, please email Bec your card to  and she will upload it to the Email Entries Blog that she has set up for you.
I have created two cards for this challenge.
This first one use the gorgeous new Tilda with her umbrella from the new Wedding Collection.
I have paper pieced her dress with some Kaiser paper and the rest is coloured with copics.
The pink background paper is from LYB clothesline collection.  Flower is a prima one and that gorgeous swirl I got in a swap I was recently in.

See that cute lady bug charm on the flower??  Bec now has these for sale in her shop!!
They are SO cute!!  go grab yourself some before they are all gone!!

Ok my second card is a bit different for me.

I have cut out the scalloped circle with a large scallopped circle nestie but have used the negative not the actual die cut.  i then place a doiley behind it and popped CC designs 'Honey' on top.
The swirl is a sizzlets one I dug out of my stash.
See that super cute ticket i have used...well its available in Bizzy Bec's Digital shop.
Yes Bec sells some digital elements, including papers and tickets and images.

Honey is coloured with copics.
