Well My First Blog Hop! I have done a couple before, but haven't actually taken part in one as such before, so I'm all excited!!
So here's my offering:
 This is using Fairy Mask by Marianne Mathiasen. The challenge and Hop for this week is "Shades of Green" in honour of St Patrick, so that was what I had to use!
3 different shades of green card stock, 3 different shades of green glitter, green foil, green Mica powder and 7 shades of green Promarkers!!
Promarkers used: Tea Green, Fresh Meadow, Soft Green, Meadow Green, Lime Green, Forest Green, and finally Pine!
 Well it was a challenge, but you know what for all that I like it, definitely a different version of Monochrome!!
I decided to use a twist on one of my favourite (well at the moment anyway) card bases. and instead of scoring the card to allow the main picture base to be framed by the outer edges, I turned it inside out, and made it so that it sits outside the outer edges as it were, so it seems a little bit more laid back than other versions!
I used the Cheery Lynn Royal Coved Rectangle DL192, die and used it to create a frame for the sides and base of the card, and the Spellbinders Lattice rectangles Die, extended slightly in my Happy cut, as a Matt for the main image. I used a green mica powder mixed with water for the background of the main Image. I foiled the flowers and hand drawn scrolls using a quickie glue pen and some foil from my foil-it machine. Various background flowers and dots were then glittered in the 3 shades of green glitter.
And there she is finished, and Fabulous in her green-ness!

 There are no other hops I'm the end, so well done for getting this far!!
