LIM Week 57 - Neutral Colours

YAY! The sun has shone all day here in West Yorkshire...for a change.  Hope it's shone on you too.
This week Chrissie and Mandi at Less Is More, have challenged us to use neutral colours.  For my card I used a cream base then added a mat of cocoa card, and another mat using cream, which I cut from a Spellbinder Fleur De Lis square. Onto this I stamped my image from 'Vintage Garden' by Stempelglede. I stamped with cocoa chalk ink by S.E.I. Unfortunately, it doesn't look very much like cocoa in my photo. With a wet brush I blended some of the ink to give a faded vintage look.
Thank you for stopping by xx
