Crafty Sentiments Digital Designs Challenge 7 ~ Monochrome + 1

Wow! its Thursday already and this means I'm at work for the last day and then I'm on leave for 2 weeks (well just over 2 weeks actually!) It also means its challenge day over at the Crafty Sentiments Digi Design Blog.  The challenge this week is 'Monochrome + 1' and we have a wonderful sponsor this week who is Meljens Designs and I was lucky enough to get to play with a cute image called 'A Girl and Her Overalls.  I decided to do  something a bit different for me but it was something I have seen elsewhere and really fancied having a go at.  I have made an easel card (not thats not the something a bit different! lol) and used papers from the Dovecraft Hint Of Pink Range, but my +1 is actually purple (not pink!) the different for me is the fact that I coloured the whole image in shades of grey including face and hair then added little bits of sakura purple stardust and I have to say that I am really pleased with how this turned out.  Have also used some purple cs and some grey buttons, the sentiment is a stamp from The Greeting Farm.

Now dont forget to stop by the blogs of the other DT members they have some stunning work to show you I know you wont be disappointed and then check out the challenge for yourself over at the Crafty Sentiments Digi Design Blog and find out about the fabulous prize from our sponsor and be sure to take part in the challenge, 'Go on You know You want to!'

I am also going to enter this card into the following challenges:
