When I stand before God at the end of my life, I would hope that I would not have a single bit of talent left and could say, "I used everything you gave me, Lord." I am a believer that God created each one of us with a unique talent, therefore, use it well to serve Him.

Monochromatic Theme

Yippee, Peachy Keen Stamps - DT Tuesday challenge for this week is a sketch with a twist. And guess what's the twist? It's monochromatic theme!  Love it...
 It's time to start playing with Copics again.  Boy, it's been more then 2 months now since I last colored an image for a card.  Well, blame it on my bug machine LOL.
I am using a Sweet Pea Stamp image for this challenge.
 Sketch provided
 I decided to make one Sepia and one Black and White cards then decide afterwards which one to use as my entry.
This is the Sepia version.
 And this is the black and white version
I opted to use this (black and white) as my entry for the challenge.  My DH and kids voted for this one so I have to go with this.

Hope you like it!  Too many tools, too many project ideas yet very little time...
