Spring Monochrome

Well this is a bit late, due to some internet difficulties!

Good morning!! Half way through March already, and spring is DEFINITELY springing here in Saskatchewan!! 🙂  What a difference it makes in people’s moods!  I have another inspiration card for Ching-Chou Kuik’s Facebook challenge, with the theme of Spring/Easter (the blog challenge theme is the same, so be sure to enter both places!!!).  This week, the DT was challenged to make a monochrome card. I had a bit of difficulty thinking of something, until I found this pussy willow print paper in my stash 🙂  I colored Spring Nocturne, from this lovely set, with my Copics, sticking to tones of muted brown.

I actually had some glitter in the right colors to add to the flowers, to add a bit of zing.  I matted both the image and the background with a dark brown CS.  I tied the big fluffy bow with some tulle type ribbon that I recently received from a Facebook friend in a card swap.  I kept looking at the card, before realizing that this was all that was needed…..not quite CAS, but not overly complicated, either 🙂

I’d like to enter this in the following:
