I recycled a Mollie Makes magazine into background paper and used a photo of the chair upholstery on that page for the band.  I decided to carry through the limited palette and just colour the bits of the girl as a focal point, reflecting the flower colour in the button.  A cuppa and a book ... heaven!

Carol, I totally agree about the cup of tea and a good book. I never would have thought of leaving most of the image in black and white and only coloring the face, but it SO WORKS. So glad you joined us at A2Z Scrapbooking.

You card looks lovely in the monochromatic colour Carol and just the hint of colour on the button, many thanks for joining in with our 'I Spy' theme at Allsorts this week.

What a wonderfully creative way to up-cycle Carol, and I agree - a cuppa and a good book is bliss!
