Make it monochrome

Good morning! Another fortnight gone and time for a new challenge at Creative Moments. This week we are sponsored by Angie's Digi Stamps and Karleigh Sue Digis, there are some fabulous images available at these two Etsy shops so well worth a visit!
I chose to use this beauty Sunday Afternoon courtesy of Karleigh Sue- thanks! As our optional theme is monochrome I decided to use sepia tones. I coloured her with copics to fussy cut and position her over a circular aperture which I had filled in using a leafy border die from Memory box to give a kind of filigree effect (does anyone understand what I mean or is it complete gibberish???) The remainder of the design is fairly simple!
Thanks for stopping by, don't forget to visit the Challenge blog, there's some fabulous creations from my teamies and we'd love it if you joined us this fortnight, don't forget the theme is optional - anything goes!

Love how you filled in the circle with the leafy die, and yes I understood it! I may have to do something similar sometime. Isn't it nice to get inspiration from everyone, thanks for joining us at Creative Card Crews die cut challenge.

Well, if it's gibberish, then I speak two languages. Hooray! ;^)
This is a stunning monochromatic card! Love the image, coloring, design, fab die cuts, stitching, and the wonderful filigree effect you achieved with the cut-out and die cuts! :^)
Hugs, Penny
