These lovely earth tones are this week's color challenge from Create with Connie and Mary.
My card is made with Butterfly Basics and I chose that stamp set because I had the fern already fussy cut and on my craft table. So I basically worked around that!The Sahara Sand background is stamped with Sahara Sand ink for a tone on tone look. I then layered it onto Typeset specialty paper which is layered on a Whisper White card base. I don't usually mix Vanilla and White but because this is such a neutral palette, it works.
For the focal point, I layered the sentiment, my fussy cut fern, and a butterfly that is stamped with Hello Honey. I added a little piece of Gold Sequin Trim to my butterfly for some bling. To add some texture to my card, I made a loose cluster of Linen Thread and Cotton Twine threads and adhered this to the Sahara Sand card stock behind the focal point.
