Thanks - a recipe for neutrals

One of the FAV 

On one hand, making cards in neutrals colors can be very challenging. On the other hand, these colors make a very elegant combination. And who doesn't love a card in neutrals colors?!

So I took inspiration from the challenge at As You See It challenge blog, whith a recipe for a neutrals card: to use an embossing folder, a ribbon or a twine, a die or a punch, one sentiment - and all that with neutrals:

I chose to work with the neutrals colors white, vanilla and kraft - for my cs, and brown ink for the sentiment.

I followed the sketch from Tuesday Morning Sketches #631:

The banners, the feathers and the tag - where cut with dies. The white stitched banner was embossed using dots embossing folder. 

I tied a bow around all the feathers with a jute twine, which also was used to tie a knot on the tag.

A one sentiment 'thanks' was stamped on the tag, and I adhered it beneath the feathers.

It goes also for the 'thanks' challenges at SimonSays Monday challenge, and SimonSays Wednesday challenge.

Thank you for stopping by. Your comments are much appreciated.

Haha I was thinking of the word elegant as soon as I saw your card and before I read what you wrote! I love this so much, I would love to know what brand all the die cuts are. Thanks so much for creating with us this week at Tuesday Morning Sketches!
