That Craft Place Challenge Blog and Polka Doodles both Monochromatic

Hi all, it's time for another challenge over at That Craft Place Challenge Blog and the challenge is Monochromatic and we are being sponsored by Indigo Blu.  I also would like to enter my DT card into the challenge over at Polka Doodles Challenge Blog which is also Monochromatic.  I have been rather interested lately about Polka Doodles, Nikki who owns it Wow have you seen her on Create and Craft with Promarkers, she really is inspirational and next week its a letraset four day deal, as you know I'm in hospital on Monday but I'm going to be taping them all and while I'm resting I am planning on having my promarkers out on the sofa watching Nikki.  She also does a design feature in  Simply Cards and Papercraft and it's this article that helped me with my first Monochromatic card, so while I was commenting for my DT I found out that polka doodle has a challenge blog so I felt it fitting that I added my card on there seems her article helped me through.  And of course as you know I love being on That Craft Place Design Team and all the details are on the side bar :-).

and a close up

I really enjoyed doing this card to say I was scared at first lol.  Right I shall be off, I will be back later with another card baby this time, simple but cute.  Have a fantastic crafty Sunday and I hope your week will be crafty as well.  Thanks for looking :-) Kezzy xxx
