Phindy's Place ~ Monochromatic

Hi  All!
This morning's card is totally out of my comfort zone. The theme this week at Phindy's  is :
Monochromatic
Now, it doesn't have to be black and white or brown and white. Remember monochromatic only means "one color family" so knock yourself out and choose something lively. :-)
But I thought I would challenge myself in making a sepia card.

This image is so sweet and could be used for so many occasions, but I thought it would work really well in expressing sympathy.
This is the card I made for Annika  who lost her mom Jan 22nd.
I wanted to make sure she recieved the card before I posted it, but she's probably got more on her mind right now than scouting Blogland for surprise cards, anyway.
A close up below:

I'll see you Sunday!

Dorcas, this is a lovely, wonderful card.
The decent colors are perfect for a sympathy card - and so is the picture with the half-hidden face... your coloring and choice of colors is really awesome as always!
