Sweet Dreams...

Hello blogland!! I hope all of you enjoyed your weekend!! It's time for a new challenge with Belles n' Whistles, and it is my turn to choose this week's challenge! So, I decided upon one of my favorite techniques called Monochromatic coloring.
The image I used is called Sweet Dreams, isn't she the sweetest!! She's absolutely precious! After I colored my image, it reminded me of photos that my grandparents have. But, of course now, we can print photos in this color (sepia).
It also reminds me of a photo of my niece when she was a baby. To finish up my card I added some lace over the printed papers from Basic Grey and Kaiser crafts. Hope you will join us for the challenge this week, just be sure to use a Belles n' Whistles stamp. You'll have until next Sunday August 1st to participate.
Thanks for stopping by!!
Copics: E50, 51, 53,54,55,57,59
