Magical Mondays 'Monochromatic' (Not just Black and White)

Morning all,
Well I snuck off yesterday and did my very first craft show for Sincerely Yours in Thetford, Norfolk. Wow I am sooo tired this morning and I ache all over from lugging boxes of stamps and paper pads around from 5.30 in the morning until I finally collapsed back on my lovely sofa at 8'o'clock last night. However, it was lovely to meet so many wonderful ladies who also share my love of all things crafty and I can't wait to meet up with you all again in May at the Lincoln Sincerely Yours Papercraft Show.
Anyway, It's time for another fab challenge over at Magical Mondays and it was my turn to pick the theme so I opted for 'Monochromatic' but don't panic all you colour lovers it is not just black and white it just means various tones of one colour. This week we are being sponsored by The Crafty Purple Frog who have kindly donated some decoupage sheets for the winner.
I know I have only just posted a card using this image but I adore this little cutie so had to use her again and as you can see I chose Pink as my colour. I kept it very simple for me as I wanted to show her off.

Materials Used
Image: Baby Fairy Flora from Stampavie
Colouring: Promarkers
Papers: Coredinations, First Edition 'Love Letters'
Nestabilities and flowers, pearls and ribbon from my stash

Promarker Colour Recipe
Skin: Blush, Dusky Pink
