Monochrome at One Stop Craft Challenge - DT Card

Weeeeee....! Its the weekend! :)

Now I made this card for my nephew - 'baby Wesley' who is 2 tomorrow, and a right little scamp ;). 

.......and over on One Stop Craft Challenge this week the theme is Monochrome - which is brilliant! :)
We are sponsored this week by Robyns Fetish and this gorgeous little digi Elephant is available here.  I thought it was a fabulous, fun image for a terrible two. ;) lol 

Why not pop over and take a look at the other wonderful cards created by the DT, as monochrome creates some really stunning and striking cards.

I went for tons of texture on this, using an embossing folder for the top panel, and a sheet of hand-made paper for the bottom.  I followed the sketch over on Wild Orchid Crafts, and printed my own sentiment.  Stickles, card-candy and fibres from stash.

I am entering this card in the below competitions:

A really apt card for a little boy & I love the way it's in greys with the aqua really highlighting the image. Delightful texture & i like that's brought through by the spotty candy/brads.
Hope the scamp enjoys his day.
