ABC Challenge - "M is for Monochrome"

Good Morning and a another new month, here we are half way through a year and I really dont know where the time has flown to, anyway this half months Challenge over on the ABC Challenge Blogspot is "M is for Monochrome" and we are being sponsored by Kenny K

http://www.kennykdownloads.com/

And we were lucky enough to be given a image to play with and I chose this one and here is my card.
And she is called the "Socialite" you will find her here, and I have printed her onto white card then used my copic pens to colour her, then used a Nestabilitie Die to cut her out and a larger one for the mount out of black card.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of black card and the papers are from Papermania's "Art Deo" paper pad, and I have used three papers from this pack, they are all pattered slightly different and layered up as shown and a black satin ribbon was then wrapped around the card and attached to the back of the first mount, on top I have placed a strip of lace similar in design as one of the papers. The final flourish is the pearls that in the top and bottom corners.
Now that youve seen my card I do hope you will pay a visit to the ABC Challenge Blogspot and see for yourself what stunning cards the rest of the Design Team have created for your inspiration and hopefully you to will want to take part in this "M is for Monochrome" Challenge.
