Monochrome Madness

Good morning, it feels like ages since I've been here although it's not actually been that long but I have been so busy it seems longer! Last night my husband, Neil, and I went to see our lovely daughter Lynsey May reading a new short story as part of an evening of magic and illusion at the Edinburgh Book Festival and totally enjoyed it, I love Edinburgh during festival time - there is such a great buzz about it and hearing the fantastic reaction to Lynsey and her work made us really proud parents :o) If you would like to see more about Lynsey and her stories visit her blog.

So, onto today's new challenge at Charisma Cardz where the theme this week is Monochrome Madness for my dt card I used a stencil and distess inks to create the background along with a stamped and die cut bird from Paper Artsy which I also distressed around the edges to add a bit of dimension. The paper came via one of our design team paper swaps, the bow is from Papermania and the sentiment is also from PaperArtsy.
