Whats the(monochro)matter

Morning all and happy Tuesday to you all. Well tuesday means time for another fab challenge over at creative craft challenges and this time we are going all monotone so pick your colour and find all those shades and get colouring!

We have another 2 fab sponsors WOJ and digi with attitude and we were given a couple of fab images to use and some sentiments too. Have to say when I initially saw the images I wondered what I could do with them and the image I used so reminded me of my baby sis as she is so not a morning person and definitely a night owl. Then I saw the sentiments and the one I chose just jumped out at me as I have heard her say it so many times as she glares at the recipient with a superior look. She works as a psychiatric community nurse and so has loads of paperwork so I thought this project would be perfect for her desk or home as she never seems to be in when I call her or is in bed after being called out overnight, not quite sure what her job entails but she sems to enjoy it and that I suppose is all that matters.

The papers I think are papermainia and I thought the black and white and grey swirls circles just fit the base was made by covering some packaging corrugated card and covered with recyclesd printer paper underneath and the rest I made like an easel card. I put a ribbon across the base so memo notelets can just be slotted over and covered the notelet pad I used with some more glossy black card and used sakura pen for the message. The image was coloured with Promarkers and mounted on mirri card.

Have to say I am quite pleased with the way it turned out and can't wait to see what my sis thinks.

I would like to enter this project into the following challenges:-

Paper pretties-non traditional fold (though I guess easel cards are fast becoming so
Meljen-square or round no rectangles( the main bit of my card is square)
Patties-anything goes
Pile it on challenge-anything goes
