Stampin' for the Weekend - Monochrome

Good morning. This week on Stampin' for the Weekend we have a monochromatic theme for you. I just love doing this type of card and almost always go with browns, my favourite!! 


The papers for this card are by Craftwork Cards and are from the Oh La La Collection. I've matted them with deep brown cardstock from The Paper Mill. This was my first attmept at machine stitching a circle.. a little bit wobbly in places but I'm getting the hang of it. 

I used the sketch from The Sugar Bowl and made an easel card to enter Sugar Nellie's Facebook challenge. 


I coloured my image using all Earth tone (E) copics. 
Hair -  44, 43, 42
Pants - 44, 43, 42, 41
Top/Hairband - 53, 51, 50
Skin - 51, 21, 00, 02
Letter - 42, 41

The flowers are all from Wild Orchid Crafts, as is the lace. My sentiment is from Lili of the Valley.
