"Sending my Love": Glitter N Sparkle Monochrome Challenge!!

Hey everyone, happy Sunday to you all!! I hope you are having a relaxing day! It's that time again for another great challenge over at the Glitter N Sparkle Challenge Blog!! This time the theme is "Monochrome".
Make sure to play along and share with us all your monochromatic creations!
We have some great sponsors lined up for this challenge:

They are graciously offering prize packs to our top 3 winners, so please make sure to link your projects for you chance to win.
The Design Team members were lucky enough to get to play with a few images from our sponsors.
The card I'm featuring today is a lovely digi from the Ppinky Dolls shop.
Here's the pic for you to check out:

The card base is made from a sheet of pink card stock and measures 4" x 5 1/2".
The image featured is the "Mr Egg - Easter Egg" digi from the Ppinky Dolls shop.
Now to pick a monochromatic color scheme for this image was a challenge.
I played around with a few different combos such as; black & white, grey & white, tan & white, etc.
But I kept coming back to a pink & white color combo.
The trick was to use my Copic markers in softer shades of pink that would compliment each other.
I wanted to avoid creating a neon pink color scheme.
So I grabbed all my pink markers and created a color swatch to test out which colors would blend well together.
Once I was satisfied with my marker choices, I preceded to color the image in.

Here's a rundown of the colors I used:
- Skin- RV000, RV52
-Hair- RV52, RV63, RV55
-Dress- RV63, RV55, C04, C0
-Bow, Basket & Mr. Egg- RV52, RV63, RV55, RV000, 
- Hillside, Background, & Flowers- C04, C0, RV000, RV52, RV55, RV63

Once I had the image filled in, I trimmed the panel to 2 7/8" x 5".
I stamped a few hearts and the sentiment, "Sending my Love" in Memento Tuxedo Black ink.
Next, I layered the image panel on a sheet of grey card stock cut at 3 1/8" x 5 1/8".
I backed the entire piece on a sheet of white card stock cut at 3 1/4" x 5 1/4".

I used foam tape to attach the image panel to the card base.
To finish it off, I wrapped some grey jute cord along the front and added a few Recollections flowers.

And voila!! Card complete!!

I hope you enjoyed this project for today!!
Thanks for stopping by; enjoy the rest of your Sunday, and as always, peace!! :)
