Simply Neutrals

Hello friends,

A new challenge starts today at the Double D Challenge blog . Team Darlene is hosting this challenge and the theme is “Neutral colors”. With Augustsuch a lovely inspiration photo I decided to join in the fun. The team have created beautiful cards to inspire you, so a visit to the Double D Challenge blog will be worthwhile.

I choose Kraft card-stock as a base for my card and layered the black birdcage die cut on a background of handmade music paper. The vine flourish is from Memory Box and the sentiment die from Penny Black. To finish off I added a twine bow, roses and some card candy. This card was so quick and easy to make and I love the outcome! Hope to see your “neutral colors” creation at Double D Challenges this fortnight.

    I love it when a new post comes up for Double D so I can visit the team’s blogs and see how they created the beauties I have been looking at on the team blog and also check out what else they have been doing. Love your background paper and how you broke it up with the brown layer at the top. The bird cage is so pretty with the flower sprays and pretty sentiment die. Fabulous design.
