Craft Rocket Challenges - Monochrome shades of one colour excluding skin and hair

Hello one and all

I hope all is well with you. Today's post is my design for Craft Rocket Challenges. Please take a look at the other designers offerings and why not join in. As in the title the challenge is to use shades of one colour. I made this card for a friend for her son's partner earlier in the year. She is a huge "old" film fan. Last year I made a card with a quote by Audrey Hepburn!
I found this topper and worked from there. I wanted a sort of Art Deco feel to the card, so made a gate fold card using decoration with a Striplet die - my favourite dies!

I hope you like it
