Monochromatic at Lexi's Creations - DT card

Morning friends, hope you're all well and have had a lovely weekend!
Back to school for some of my brood today so hopefully some craft time heading my way!

So, today it's time for our next challenge over at Lexi's Creations and this time the challenge is Monochromatic.
Now i know that doesn't mean just black & white but that's what i chose to go with as soon as i saw this fab image - i just pictured gorgeous black leather ankle boots with a soft suede upper - heaven!
Our sponsor this time is the fabulous and talented Marina Neira, owner/designer of The Stamping Bazaar, and the lucky winner of our challenge will have their choice of digi!

You have until 3rd March to play and don't forget you can make anything - cards, ATC's, bookmarks, etc.,as long as it fits the theme. I can't wait to see all your wonderful projects and don't forget to pop over to Lexi's Creations and have a look at all the fab creations from my lovely teamies!
Thanks for looking and good luck!
