Grey Fairy

Our Sponsor at the Colour Crazy Craft challenge this time is Ching-Chou Kuik.
This is one of her images called Sakura.

I thought I would go for a monochrome look with her, so I have coloured her using Polychromo pencils all in greys. I think she is quite pretty. The image has then been die cut.

I have also die cut a couple of different frames and some corners in grey and black. It is all layed out on a grey patterned paper background.

I have used a punch to make a grey card panel and round it I have tied a silver bow.

Then finally in two of the corners I have added some silver metal flowers, these have either got a pearl brad or a gem in the centre. The spiky leaves have been punched out of dark grey card. I am quite pleased with the finished card, I hope you all like it too.

I would like to enter this in the following challenges
