How Bizarre is this?

How bizarre is this, a few week's ago for Just Magnolia I use pink and grey - the following week the theme was 'pink and grey', last week I used monochrome - what is the theme this week - 'monochrome'. Is someone reading my mind or am I reading someone's mind??

Fortunately I love monochrome last weeks was black/grey so this week I used my favourite colour - brown and follwed the fabulous sketch over at  Create 4 fun. Tilda with lolly is coloured with Copics and cut out using round nesties and the 'out the box' technique - not the easiest of images to use for this but I rarely do anything the easy way!! The papers are some ancient ones - freebies from a magazine and I've used the Basic Grey corner flourish stamp for the edges of the square. I made the flower using the Woodware cherry blossom punch, the EK Success small retro flower punch and Stempelglede flower stamp in the middle.
The leaves are cut with the Leone Em branch punch, the sentiment is Whiff of Joy and cut with a Spellbinders ribbon tag. The rest is from stash.

I usually don't like our Magnolia babies monochromatic. The ones I have seen just look blah....This one certainly is an exception! It turned out just gorgeous. Not only do you color beautifully but you have an eye for putting the right colors together. Stunning card.
