OSCC Monochrome 'An Elephant Never Forgets'

Its challenge time again at One Stop Card Craft and our theme this week was 'Monochrome'. I chose an adorable digi from the collection at Robyn's Fetish-isnt he really cute? :-) I would love to see some of you enter our challenge this week-we have a great prize :-)
For this project I also used Papermania capsule collection Monochrome papers, Promarkers, black glitter card, butterfly punch, black card, ribbon, buttons, vinyl sticker, brads and a white petal.
I started by colouring my digi in grey promarkers, and mounting him onto a panel of patterned paper, backed with black card. I then covered the card blank in a panel of patterned paper backed with black card to echo the focal point, but with a tiny border of white showing through. Next I embellished the card with black and white embellishments, ribbon, flowers, brads, buttons, butterfly and a vinyl sticker.
They are not colours I usually play with but I was really happy with the result :-)

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:

Papertake Weekly Challenge:Anything Goes
Paper Playtime: Digi Monday
CRAFT Challenge:97 Animals
CES Challenge: Monochrome
PaperPlay Challenges:Critters Galore
