Shades of One at The Crafting Cafe

Hi Folks
Hope you are all well.  Most of you know that I started a new job about three weeks ago.  The job was full time but on a 6 month temporary contract.  Yesterday my boss offered me a permanent contract.  Unexpected to happen so soon but very welcome.  At least I know that I will not have to start job hunting again in 6 months.  I certainly must have made an impression lol.

Today I am here to share some inspiration for our current monthly challenge over at The Crafting Cafe.  Our theme for this month is:
Shades of One

Here is my inspiration project using an image from one of our sponsors Bugaboo Stamps.

I decided just to add some colour to the circular image by using distress ink.  The backing paper was in my scraps box and I used purple pearlescent card for the matting.  I lightly coloured the doily with some more distress ink.  The embellishments were all in my stash.

Thanks for popping by.  Just pop over to The Crafting Cafe for full challenge details.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Crafting by Designs - Anything goes
Digi Choosday - Monochromatic
HIMCR - Super scraps
A Creative Romance - Anything goes
