Monochrome Magic at Crafty Cardmakers

This time at Craft Cardmakers we have been asked by Beth to use shades of one colour, she is allowing one other colour to create highlights but thats all.
I don't usually make monochrome cards as I like different colour combinations on my cards but I had bought the Pollyanna and Pals CD which has lots of lovely monochrome images on it so I used one of these. I printed the topper sheet and decided which one to use then I found a black card to put it on. I know I should have found the card and then chosen the topper but it just didn't work that way this time lol!
As I had a square card and a rectangular topper I needed to trim the card and decided to make this a decorative feature using a punch. I had been playing with my embossing powders and decided to use them to create a faux frame around the card and to highlight the punched edges. I lined the inside of the card with some silver paper as well.
This is not my usual style but I like it and will probably send it just to say hello as she is posting her own letters.
Thanks for popping by and any comments you are kind enough to leave are read with great interest.
