Monochrome madness

Good morning all, well where is this year going?  It seems to be speeding past!  As today is Tuesday that means a new challenge over at Crafty Sentiments and this week the theme is Monochromatic, now this used to frighten the life out of me, I loved seeing peoples monochrome cards but it took me a long time to try it for myself and when I did I really did like the effect I managed to achieve so I no longer look at monochrome challenges with fear!  

The prize this week for a lucky winner is 

So onto my card and I thought I'd try a different colour that I don't usually associate with monochrome cards.  For my image I used the adorable Benson - For You digi image which is available at Crafty Sentiments Designs, coloured with a mix of copics and spectrums, my paper is from MME and some coredinations cs which I have embossed.  The sentiment is also from Crafty Sentiments Designs, punched butterflies and finished off with some ribbon from my stash.
