Stampin' for the Weekend - Monochrome

Stampin' for the Weekend's challenge this time is Monochromatic & there is a $25 gift voucher from Simon Says Stamp! for the lucky winner. My card is made with these gorgeous pearlescent papers (sorry I can't remember where from), I inked a mini doily with distress ink, the image is a PaperArtsy stamp, the butterfly stamp is from Anna Griffin & I added a touch of sparkle to the wings. I finished the card off with a ribbon & charm. Why not check out the other DT members blogs for lots more inspiration :-) (You can see the colour better in the bottom photo).

I'm entering this card for 2 Challenges:
Stamptacular - Back in Time
Crafty Creations - One Colour
Polka Doodles - Wings

I love the card- it is really neat that you show it in two different colors- how different it looks black and brown. TFS!
