Quick monochrome

We Are 3 are sponsoring Outlawz Sketch this month.  I had to make a quick card this week because I was running out of time.  Their papers and sentiments are perfect for making a simple card look glamorous. 

Here's our sketch for this week.  As you can see Bonnie has cleverly design the design paper to go with our sketch :)

I've used Tones of Grey - Dots and Doily for this creation.  The sentiment is from Special Birthday sentiments.  I've cut the sentiment out with a Spellbinder die and then distressed it.  It's been mounted onto some black card cut with a Spellbinders die into the center of the doily on the design paper.

Apart from the design paper I've used some more black card.  Both of these have been distressed with a Tonic Solutions die.

I've had these black swirls in my stash for ages and though they were perfect to complete the monochrome look.

Hope you like my inspiration for today and we see you at the challenge.
