Tag You're It! Monogram

Challenges are great for pushing you out of your comfort zone - I have seen some fabulous collage work around blogland and so thought I would have a go this week with the theme Monogram. I began with the letter J as my name begins with it but its actually going to be for someone else whose name begins with J.
The colours came from the the letter so I grabbed what was to hand and took it to craft club on Thursday to have a fiddle. The Music sheet is some I got from freecycle a while ago and its great for this sort of thing.
The flower is a freebie stamp from craft stamper, the leaf stamp is from a papermania build a rose set. The paper is from DCWV , the ribbons and buttons from stash and the gorgeous diamante buckle is from Bits and bats. Teamed with a miniature doily I think it looks ok for my first efforts at this style. Hope J likes it!
Do stop by the Tag You're it blog and check out everyone elses mongram projects - My teamies are sooo talented x
