Tuesday Throwdown - Neutral Colors

I'm playing along with the Tuesday Throwdown #81 for the first time, and the challenge is to create a card using neutral colors. This one pretty much meets that challenge. It's done in SU! crumb cake card stock and I used a piece of vellum for the accent. I started with the SU! Fabulous Flowers stamp set and stamped the image on the card stock and again on vellum with Versamark. I embossed the vellum with white ep and hand cut it and placed it over the stamped image on cardstock. I added some ribbon, blush pearls, a sentiment and a bow done with the Bow-easy. The smaller panel is popped up on foam tape.
It's been raining here in PA today, so it was a good day to stay inside and stamp! Thanks for stopping by!

Carol, this is just sooooo gorgeous! I love what you did with the vellum and embossing. That is such a yummy flower. Your pretty bow makes me wonder where I have put my Bow-Easy. Been forever since I've seen it. Such good organization, huh? :-)
It has poured rain here today, also. And, I mean poured.
Glad to see you join us at Tuesday Throwdown this week.
