A new challenge for April at All dressed Up!

Hi friends!
Did you have a good weekend? I did!
Firstly the Happy Stampers Craft Show at Port Sunlight on Saturday,
 then seeing all my lads and families on Mother's Day yesterday. Bonus!!
Told 'em all I only wanted flowers, and flowers I got! 
They are everywhere so I can see them in almost every room. 

OK, are you ready for another challenge at All Dressed Up?
Of  COURSE you are!

Our theme for this challenge is *MONOCHROME*

Here is my card

I have used the gorgeously cute 'Fairy Magic'.
She's available in Wendy's Etsy shop HERE.
I haven't done a lot of monochrome cards, so this challenge is good as it gets my out of my comfort zone to try new things.
I coloured her with Copics. I was in a quandary about her hair
being this minty colour, but then thought,
'Hey! She's a fairy, so she can have minty coloured hair if she wants to'!
Phew! Got outa THAT one in one piece! LOL
The gorgeous CS is some I got from Papertrey Ink a couple or more years ago.
(Before USPS went daft with Shipping prices)!
The sentiment is from SU's 'Perfectly Penned' set.
I added Glamour Dust to her wings, 'coz what's a fairy without glittery wings eh!
The card is 8"x8". I made the scalloped circle on my Cameo 'coz I didn't have a die that size.
I also made the shape on the striped card using the Cameo. LOVE that machine to BITS!
That's about it folks.

Here's the deets! (There aren't many)

The challenge will run until the 15th of April.
You must use an ADU image or paper to play along.
(There are freebies on the blog, so don't worry).

Head on over to the All Dressed Up Blog to check out the rest of the team's creations, they are A-Mazing!
Why not enter the challenge whilst you are there.
We'd LOVE you to play along with us, honestly.

Don't forget to stop by our Facebook Group to keep up to date with all the latest All Dressed Up news, and chat to fellow crafters. 

Well that's it from me for now. Have a super duper week and happy crafting!
