Flourishes Beautiful World Tour - Neutrals With Texture


Hello, dear friends and followers.  I am on holiday right now, so here's hoping that Blogger has behaved and that this scheduled post is up and running.
It's the first Monday in June, and time for another Flourishes - Beautiful World TourOnce again we invite you to travel the world with us for the chance of winning a FREE FLOURISHES STAMP SET!!! To be in with a chance of winning, you must leave a comment on each designers blog by 30th June.
This month Meredith is our hostess, and she has challenged us to create something using neutral colours with some texture.
Here is my card, and for some reason the colours look much darker than they really are.  My roses are light cream in real life.....
I used a cream base card, and added some embossed card stock in dark beige and pale peach. I then added some ribbon lace from my stash. My sentiment label is from Flourishes 'Country Charm' set of stamps. I stamped with cocoa chalk ink onto cream card and coloured with markers in pale peach. The sentiment is from Flourishes 'Sentimental Favorites' stamped with cocoa chalk ink.
I cut some roses from cream vellum on my Silhouette Cameo  and edged them with peach chalk ink. I then die cut some leaves. I laid my spray of roses onto some cream skeleton leaves.
I'm the last on the hop. But if you get lost along the way just hop on back to the Flourishes blog and start from there.
Thanks for stopping by! See Ya Soon!
Love Sasha xx

Dark or light, the colors you chose are wonderful. I love this card. The woodgrain embossing gets me everytime. The flowers are loving and that heart and lace ribbon is fantastic. Love the double layered sentiment label. With a change of sentiment, this card would be great for so many occasions. It's a real keeper!
