Hello

Today I have a card to share with you that combines this week's sketch from  Clean and Simple and  challenge #77  from The Play Date Cafe using the colors of green, brown and white.

When I first saw this color combo I have to say I thought it was a little boring.  But once I pulled out my papers I realized what a wonderful combination it really was.  I started the card with a
base of kraft card stock that I embossed.
The  brown and white papers from Making Memories were cut out with a Tim Holtz edge die. I made a rosette and used my Spellbinders butterflies dies for the double layered butterfly. For the center strip I used a Martha Stewart punch.  The sentiment is from an Ippity stamp set How You Doin'.  A few pearls and a white flower completed the card.   That about sums it up! Thanks so much for looking and have a wonderful day!
