It's Magical Monday!

Good Monday morning everyone!
It's a Magical one here and today I have this gorgeous image 'Elegant Pumpkins' to show you by the ever-so talented Nina May over at There's Magic in the Air. Leigh Anne has added the challenge 'monochromatic' to this weeks image - the image can be coloured but the rest of the card has to be monochromatic (black/white/grey).
Well, this is mine - I hope you like it! It's an image that is normally way out of my comfort zone but I'm really pleased with the way it turned out. I had loads of fun colouring this with my copics. I dug through all my stash to find anything 'elegant' (lol) and found this gorgeous velvet vine that I had picked up ages ago in a Dollar Store - I knew it would come in handy some day!! The rest of the card is pretty self-explanatory - the black cardstock is Core'dinations Black Magic and I sanded it gently to show some grey/white underneath. Nestie squares, my piercing tool and some adhesive pearls add the finishing elegant touches!! Oh yes, and the black organza ribbon!
Thanks for stopping by today - I really hope you can pop over to TMITA and check out all the other gorgeous creations by the talented DT. Be sure to join in too, after all this image is a FREEBIE. Nina has another wonderful prize up for grabs! Your comments are always so truly appreciated so thank you all for your kind and wonderful words!
Hugs,
Danielle x
