Crafty Cardmakers Challenge 61 - Monochrome magic

The challenge this week at Crafty Cardmakers has been set by Beth, and is "Monochrome Magic"

For my card, I have chosen to use a digistamp from Digi Doodles called the Waltz, which has been coloured in using promarkers, and a background paper which has been made using the flitter glu from IndigoBlu and some silver gilding flakes with a Glitter girls floral flourish stamp.  
The card itself is an easel card, using black card as the base.  I cut the digi stamp out when coloured and mounted it onto black card, leaving a small edge around the image.  This was then mounted onto the top part of the easel.

The final touches were some pearls and a sentiment on the top (back) half of the easel and a stop plate that said Happy Birthday.  The flowers in the bottom left hand corner of the base of the card were punched from a tonic punch, and the centre beads were from my stash.  The ferny leaf was punched from silver paper using a Martha Stewart punch.
