Neutral Thinking

Hi All! Happy St. Patrick's day to those out celebrating today! I have a quick creation to share with you today. This card is actually a sample for my club girls this month. I wanted to showcase some backgrounds and the use of neutral papers. I also needed to make a sympathy card for my stash, as I noticed that I had none, and really like to have some on hand. As this card is not actually a Sympathy but a simple thinking of you card that can be used either way. Anyhoo -

I stamped my background with crumb cake, and the floral spray in the center (from the same  background stamp) with classic black. I then stamped my image (background) again in versamark on very vanilla paper, heat embossed with black EP, then cut out the flowers (from the same spray) I wanted and paper pieced them onto the stamped image, popping up some with dimensional dots for depth. I used some very vanilla ribbon, and Sincere Salutations for my sentiment. Simple and stated if I do say so myself, an I think the club girls will love it too. :) Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek! Details below -
