Pretty Little Ribbon Shop - Challenge 2

Good Monday morning to everyone!
It's time for the September challenge over at The Pretty Little Ribbon Shop Blog.  The challenge this month is to make a card, or anything crafty, in Monochrome....and there's a fabulous black and white ribbon and button prize up for grabs!

I got carried away and made two cards for this months challenge...

My first card is square pearl shimmer in pale green.  I added some embossed and distressed  Core'Dinations whitewash cardstock, and did some faux stitching around the edge.  
My heart embellishment is in three layers. The final layer is a stamped image - 'Muse Heart' by Hero Arts. I stamped with bundled sage and added a touch of glamour dust.

Bling is from my stash. Sentiment computer generated.  My flower and edging is the beautiful gingham ruffle from The Pretty Little Ribbon Shop.
Card No. 2
I cut the card shape, mats and rolled roses on the Silhouette. The patterned paper is from Crafty Secrets CD.  Sentiment stamp is Anna Griffin.  My bow is 'Tile Blue' seam binding from The Pretty Little Ribbon Shop.

Don't forget to pop over to the Pretty Little Ribbon Shop Blog  and check out the lovely creations by the other DT ladies.

These are absolutely beautiful Sasha I'm glad you're not asking me to choose a favourite:) You mention using your Silhouette and it's something I'm thinking of purchasing. It seems to be more flexible than the cricut in that you can use any of your own images from the computer. Would you recommend it? Thanks for your comments on my kitchen foil:))
