Feeling Blue?

Here we have another challenge from Just Magnolia...Monochrome! There are a couple of takes on what Monochrome is; shades of all one colour or one colour with white. I tried to use the shade of one colour look! I really hope I did it right! I used sweet Tilda holding all her Christmas presents and just tried to keep to the all blue look using my Lyras and Prismas. I don't know if you can see but I placed a little pearl for earrings on her ear. I'm thinking this card is just a little too plain but I just drew a blank when it came to embellishments!

Have a great Halloween night if you celebrate in your part of the world!
