Digi Choosday goes Monochrome

Good Morning,

It's Tuesday so that means challenge time again over at Digi Choosday and out theme is 'Monochrome'. For this I decided to use brown as my colour as the brown & cream papers in the Nordic Winter Collection are to die for.

For my Monochrome card I have coloured up the Santa Digi with pencils for that more vintage look. I have added some glamour dust around & about for that added sparkle, it is a Christmas card after all.

All of the papers & embellishments are also from the Full Nordic Winter Collection that can be found Here

I have distressed the edges of the papers with the Time Holtz distressing tool & have added Vintage photo ink to the distressed edges.

For the first time in ages I have also decorated the inside of the card to mimic the outside. My husband looked at this card & has put this one in his pile of cards to give to people, I do have to say no to him on occasions as I would like some for myself.

You can see the inside a tad more in this pic

Thank you for stopping by & make sure you pop over to the Digi Choosday blog & see what the rest of the DT have come up with. As it's Tuesday don't forget it's discount day so go & grab your code & get a great bargain on these fab digi's.

Hope you have a fab day
