Monochromatic at Stampin' For the Weekend


The challenge at SFTW starting today is "Monochromatic".  The image I used is from Sassy Cheryls & I coloured it with Distress Inks (I haven't used them for ages & it made a nice change).  The papers were a freebie from Computer Scrapbook & I distressed the edges, the butterflies are punched & inked & I finished of with some flowers (with added Glamour Dust), lace, a doily & some pearls.  

The challenges for this card:
Little Claire's - Anything Goes
Dutch Dare - Sparkle/Glitter/Bling
Paper Sundaes - Pick Your Sundae
Papertake - Putting on the Glitz
Crafts & Me - Spread Your Wings
Creative Cottage - Fabulous Florals
Totally Paper Crafts - Do it With Digi's
Challenge Up Your Life - Monochrome 
CardMadFairy's Digi Days - Distress It! 
Phindy's Place - Monochrome
Sukkersott - Lace, Beads & Flowers

Tracey, This vintage card is stunning. Love all the details. Are the butterflies punched with a Martha Stewart punch? If so, I have been eying that one for some time.
