monochrome love...

Good morning everyone, did you all have a good day yesterday? despite it being my gorgeous Phil's birthday yesterday we had a quiet day and no Phil's present didn't arrive, I am hopping mad now and will ring to give them a piece of my mind on Monday...my Sister and her family paid an unexpected visit yesterday so we met up with them for a while for a catch up...my niece and nephew get cutier and more beautiful every time I see them, my niece is just the sweetest little girl ever and shes a real pink girly girl too she so reminds me of my beautiful Daughter when she was small...oh and we went shopping for more paint and even managed to disagree about cream paint...seriously now how much difference can there be lol...anyway onto my card for today which is using the gorgeous Hatched, Matched and Dispatched digi from Teddybo...isn't it gorgeous, I just coloured shadows with distress inks and glittered the veil and car...how much would I love a glittery car like this, not sure Phil would though lol...the gorgeous monochrome paper is from My Mind's Eye lush collection and is called Black Floral paper, the spotted is the reverse, I finished with a sentiment stamp from the Whimsy Love Letter Seal set from Bunny Zoe's Crafts...I love this set...and a satin ribbon and Prima flower...the lush sketch is from Mojo Monday and I'm also entering this for the Allsorts Free and Easy July challenge...we are having a family lunch today, the kind of day when everyone eats too much...whatever your up to have a fantastic Sunday everyone
