Ching-Chou Kuik Digital Stamps Facebook Challenge August 2015 - Monochromatic

Over at the Ching-Chou Kuik Digital Stamps Facebook Group the challenge this month is "monochromatic".  Normally I would have gone for my favourite colours like purple or teal blue but instead I went for pink.  Growing up as a child I loved red and pink but later on in life I couldn't stand these colours and progressed to liking purple.  I don't tend to use pink or red much in my cardmaking so this card was quite a struggle.
For my card I have used the Ching-Chou Kuik digital stamp called "Snowflake Angel".  Yes she can be used for a Christmas card but I think she's perfect for a winter birthday as well.

I have coloured the image in with lots and lots of different colours of Promarkers.  I then used 6 different pearlescent chalks for the background.

A few Christmases ago my eldest son bought me a paper pad from Tim Holtz.  It took me a while to start using it but use it I did.  Now I've come virtually to the end of the pink papers.  Maybe I can have some more for Christmas?

I have finished the card off with a Joanna Sheen heart die-cut bunting, buttons, ribbon, pearls, Craftwork Cards die-cut sentiment, doily chalked over with the pink pearlescent chalks and some flowers made with a Joanna Sheen flower die set.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
