Love Is.... Grey and Purple!

Evening all,
I hope everyone that is affected by the deadly white stuff is safe and warm and hasn't slipped about too much.
Well safe to say the shop was a little quieter today so I stole a few hours to play and decided to use the gorgeous 'Daisy' a firm favourite of mine from Sugar Nellie.

The challenge over at Passion for Promarkers really got me thinking 'Use Grey and Purple' so I tried my hand at another Black and White image. I remember many moons ago seeing a tutorial on colouring just with shades of grey and it taught me alot unfortunately I cannot remember whether it was the very talented Denise or the equally talented Deb from the PFP Design Team, but thank you anyway to both ladies as you have always inspired me.
I chose to team my design with an old Basic Grey DP 'Wisteria' which I love and edged everything with Pumice Stone DI and Diamond Stickles.
Both of the beautiful dies are from Marianne D and the lovely little sentiment is from Magnolia. The flowers, pearls and charm came from my stash.
