Allsorts week 23

Allsorts Challenge 23

Good morning everyone, I am Brenda and I am pleased to welcome you to week 23 of Allsorts challenge. Time just seems to fly and I really can't believe it's my turn again to set the theme.
I have come up with a sketch
and would like to see your

Monochrome Christmas

projects. I think many of us consider monochrome to be black and white variants, but according to the ancient Greeks "μονοχρωματικός" means "a picture done in different shades or a range of tones of a single colour". So I really can't wait to see what you all come up with. Here is the sketch.
