Crafty Catz Challenge #463

Good morning, it's my turn to host the challenge at Crafty Catz this week, which means I get to pick the optional theme, I chose 'monochrome'.
We are so lucky to be sponsored by MORGAN'S ARTWORLD for this challenge

The lucky winner will receive the 3 images shown below, as used by the team.

I chose to use the fabulous Lizzie Hopwood, I think this image is amazing and thoroughly enjoyed colouring her in various shades of green, I made a frame for her by die cutting an arched window into piece of cardstock which I had coloured with distress inks. I stamped the vine leaves around the archway using distress inks. I adhered this onto an embossed  easel card base, adding some twine, diecuts and feathers to finish.
My teamies have, as always, created some fantastic cards using the beautiful sponsor images, so please do hop over and take a look! 

I'm in for a busy weekend as I have my 2 elder granddaughters staying with me for a few days, we've loads planned, including a visit to the Harry Potter film studios on Monday...not sure who's more excited about it the girls or me!

Hope you have a lovely weekend, whatever you are doing!
