Elisabeth Bell's World Challenge November/December

Good morning!  Happy Monday!  Hope you had a great weekend and your week is off to a good start!  Maybe not so much for those in the path of this early winter storm!  It is very cold here and it's going to rain for days, but we don't expect any of the snow and ice that is predicted for up north.  It sure is going to wreak havoc for those who planned to travel for Thanksgiving.  Anyway, I am here today with my card for the new Elisabeth Bell's World Challenge for November/December.  I get to join in this month as part of the current Digi Bells GDT.  The theme this time is "monochromatic".

Here is my card:

My shaped card base and mats were cut with my Cameo using an Artisan Frame file from the Silhouette store.  The patterned paper is from the Graphics 45 Little Darlings 8x8 pad.  The sweet image is Little Lamb from the Elisabeth Bell Digital Collection.  I printed her on MiC Blending Card and colored her with my Copics.  She's framed with a Spellbinders Decorative Labels Eight diecut.  I added Liquid Pearl accents around the frame. I used some pretty lace, organza rosettes and a triple-loop seam binding bow.  I created my own stick pin with Swarovski Crystals and pearls.  Wild Orchid Crafts roses, rosebuds and a lily finished my card.

Here is a close-up of the colored image:

Thanks for stopping by!  Be sure to visit the Elisabeth Bell's World Challenge blog and check out the gorgeous creations from the Digi Bells and my fellow GDT, Linda.  We hope you will play along with any Elisabeth Bell image and a monochromatic theme. You have until Sunday, December 22 to enter.
