It's a Blue Ellie this time!

Hi Everyone

Today is the start of the new challenge over at Monochrome Magic Challenge

The theme for the next month is Anything Goes Monochrome or Monochrome with a TWIST of Add a Bow.  I am really hoping to see the number of entries increase over the next couple of months we seem to be lacking so please come on over and play along with me.

For my inspiration project I have made a second Christmas Card for Chloe (No I am not going mad lol)  I made her one last week using this image and my friend fell in love with it and asked if I could make her one exactly the same for her Daughter.  I don't like to make two the same so I let her have the one that I made for Chloe for her Daughter and made another one using the same image as I just love it, so now Chloe will have this one lol.

The Image is from SheepSki Designs and is called Ready For Christmas.  I have coloured this cutie using Copics.  I added two different colours of Frantage around the image a white and a very pale blue.

The card is a 7" Square and the patterned paper is from my stash.  I cut the image using a GoKreate Circle die and layered this onto a scalloped circle which I cut using a Spellbinders die.  The baubles are a Memory Box Die and I popped them on some Satin Ribbon.  I hand tied the Organza bow.  The sentiment is hand stamped and is from Stampingallday.  To finish I added some Pearl Gems.

I would like to enter this card into the following Challenges

 Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog and share this card with me.  Please leave me a comment to let me know what you think.  Hope to see you again soon.
