GDT with Fab 'N' Funky - Monochromatic

I'm late :(

Augh! What a week!
You will all have to forgive me as I make my way through a house in a complete shamble that I am trying to get backed up, cleaned and organized all by myself ready to move.
I generally don't mind cleaning but a whole house is really pushing my limits.

Guess that's maybe why I had so much fun taking a little time out with this weeks challenge with
Have to admit, this is another of my favorites too!
#87 - Monochromatic

But I am a busy girl so it is on with the pics!



As this is for hubby for his Birthday, I didn't think he would appreciate pretty pink flowers so I played around and managed to pull of these grungy steam punk like ones that I think give a really cool masculine feel.  Especially having the two up the top missing petals.  Things one stumble across when just messing around with bits and bobs :) Love it!

This week I am using The Stamping Boutique!
Ohh some yummy images over there for you all girls!
They are also kindly sponsoring this week prize! Woo Hoo!
