It's A Monochromatic Day at the Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge

Good morning to you all in the land of blog
Before I introduce you all to the next challenge a quick update, 
the flying ants have gone thank heavens and I shall shortly be leaving for the wedding fully clothed, I don't take very good photo's so if your lucky I will try find one that looks good enough to post.  

Matt thanks all of you for your kind birthday wishes and had a great day and caught 40 fish in total, what a fabulous birthday he had, followed by drinks with family and friends in the evening. 

Later on today if I am still able to see the screen after the wedding, I will be drawing my candy, and posting the next delish candy, I can reveal that the candy matches quite nicely the theme of today's challenge, oh I do like to tease!!!!!!

So back to the matter at hand, the new challenge at the 

It was my week to choose the theme so I chose


I do so love doing this style of card, using my favourite colours

Here is my design team inspirational piece for you this week
This is an open sentiment card, good for lots of occasions using black and cream for the monotones. Hope you can just see the little shaped pearls peeking out from the black roses.
The base layer is black this also compliments the image plate.  The papers (and I must find some more) are my favourite linen and flocked papers by GCD Studios called Paris Nights.  The card is a normal 5 x 5 inch however the circle is the 2nd smallest grand circle nestie.  The sentiment I cannot remember sorry should really keep my packets.  The flowers are from the Hobby House and the punched leaves is one I got at the Doncaster Dome craft show.  The image is a Secret Crafter Manga Image, now I know that the site to buy these on is down at the moment however you can still buy these by contacting the shop and also they are now available at Grimsby Crafts in the clear polymer.  This one is called "Poor Boy"
He has been coloured in with copics, Neutral Greys, Toner Greys and Creams along with the flesh tones.

Now don't forget to hop over and see my team mates fabulous inspirational pieces.
