A Gem of a Challenge - monochrome

Hello everyone, hope you're all enjoying your weekend so far :o)  I'm here with my first card for today, for our new theme at A Gem of a Challenge, chosen by the lovely Christine, which is 'monochrome, not xmas + a sentiment'.




I've used the gorgeous Butterfly Chloe and coloured her with promarkers and flexmarkers, with some touches of Sakura clear stardust pen for a bit of shimmer.  The papers are from the papermania 'big one' stack - I tend to forget all about these papers but they're great for monochrome cards.  The border was cut with my favourite MFT die (again!) and I added a Craftwork Cards sentiment, a little punched flower and some little pearls from my stash.

I'm entering my card for the following challenges:

Off for a huge catch up with you all as I didn't get much blogging time yesterday... back later with my DT card for Sweet Stampin' :o)
