Neutrals Challenge & Anniversary


















My parents 41st anniversary is on Monday, and I thought I would try this challenge on their card. This is for the Neutrals Color Challenge for Card Makers Week over on the Moxie Fab blog.
I seem to have trouble with color challenges, I find I need a picture inspiration. So I saw this ad in an email newsletter from west elm, and it led to this card. I love sheets! and have a problem with buying a lot of them. ;)
I used the speckled cream paper from PTI, and the new Fillable Frames 10 for the sentiment frame. PTI Rickrack die was the perfect thing to use for the zigzag sheets. The twig paper has PTI Polka Dot Basics II stamped on it to copy the headboard look. And for the hanging shells in the corner: I used a shell button that one of my friends gave me that was on a magnet, but the glue didn't hold, so I recycled the shells. I used my circle scalloped nestabilities and clipped "petals" on the blue one and then bent them up around the button.
