CES Challenges DT Card.............Monochromatic

Good morning all you lovely jubbly people how are you all? I am fine & dandy....its sunny again woo hoo.
Now I'm a teensy bit late with this post I went to publish but then changed my mind about the photo's cus they were took at night under artificial light....I wanted sunshine.....natural daylight. So in my jammies I toddle off ootside with my card & camera & cus its early my bench is still in shade so I take my card to the steps. We have 2 steps coming down off the decking onto the garden. Did you know how wet the grass is in the morning from the dew......even wetter when you in very thin jammies!!! Yes I come down funny off the step & fell on my ass on the wet grass......needless to say the piccies are better, worth a wet ass!!!! lol
Ok stop laughing now I can hear ya........& no I dont have a piccy of me doing my diving swan act!! lol
Anyway onto why you are here its cus its Saturday......I can hear yayyyyaaayyyyy.
This week our fabulous Shell has chosen the theme which is just my fave theme
Yes you know I love mono but instead of going for my greys I went sepia as I've only done it once before & I luuuuurrrrve sepia photo's....I've even used another un-inked stamp, yeah check me

Isn't she perfect for monochromatic.......I thought so anyway & I followed a sketch that just cried out to be a gatefold....perfect actually!!!!

The flower I made myself with some shimmering organza & stuck a button in the middle, it really does look gorgeous IRL.

I've even coloured her with Promarkers.........yes I know but they were feeling neglected lol. I'm making myself to colour with all my mediums in 1 week....I've done well I've just got my prisma's to do one with now. I like a change they say its as good as a 

The inside decorated simple with a sheet of paper & a nestie & a simple flower with a gem in the middle.
The paper is GCD 'Paris Night' which was perfect for this image, the paper, the Tim Holtz ticket, the smaller flowers & of course Promarkers you can get all of these from Crafty Emma's Store.
All of the rest is from my little craft room.
Hope to see over there there is a prize of £10 to spend in Emma's shop excluding postage....ooooh so many goodies in that shop I tell ya.......I wonder if I can enter????
Anyway I'm off now to take a cuppa to my man cus he had a bad night & is still in bed so I'm gonna take him a cuppa.
Will be round in 5 mins to sees ya all.
Tatty bye for & thank you sooooo much for stopping by you all totally rock.

This is really stunning sweetie. Your layouts are all so gorgeous. In answer to your question hunni, I go to Hydro at the hospital once a week on a six weeks on and six weeks off rota. It is just exercises in water as the water is too hot for swimming. I also go once a week in term time to a disabled school in our area that has a warm swimming pool and there I can swim. I can not go to a public pool as the water is too cold for me. I went to Ally Pally craft fair yesterday and came home in agony, knees/hips and back ached. I couldn't sleep very well because I was in so much pain but it was worth it.

You do make me laugh with your little mishaps. I can actually picture it all... maybe because I do stoopid stuff like that all the time too ;) I'm actually still sniggering! Bless ya and your little wet ass ;)

Anyway, I just want to say, STUNNING CARD!!!! I really, really love it! You've done the sepia tones to perfection and I love the whole thing in fact. Still making me sick... STOP IT! ;)
