BBB-08 - Neutrals

Happy Monday!

It`s the first Monday of the month and that means it`s time for another Bring Back Beautiful challenge!
Have you ever used neutral colors to bring out the depth in one of your coloring projects? Well, let's kick it up a knotch and show you just how beautiful your stamped creations can be without any color at all! That's right, this challenge is to color up your card with neutrals - shades of grey, sepia tones or even black and white!

Link up your Bringing Back Beautiful Challenge card HERE to enter. If you upload to SCS, please use the keyword BBB08. You have until March 31st to enter! As we unveil our challenge for next month, we’ll share our True Beauties – those card makers who wowed us with this challenge! Winners will be featured on the Flourishes Blog and will receive a True Beauty blog button to display proudly on their blog!

For my sample I used A year in flowers 2 stamp set, and colored the roses with different shades of brown, using Distress Inks. I cut out the colored image and popped it up with dimensionals. I hope you`ll join us with this fun challenge!
For more inspiration, have a look at these beauties:

CAS - With Love

Hi everyone,

I guess some of you know how much I LOVE Clean And Simple cards, even though I don`t see myself as a CAS - cardmaker! I always enjoy trying something new, and that`s just what I wanted making this card set. Not only are these super quick and easy to create, they are also suitable for mailing because they are neither heavy or bulky in any way :)

Believe it or not, but I actually own a Cricut - machine! I`ve had it for years, but never really used it much. As going through my stash I found this cartridge called Home Accents, and just had to try it:) I also used a nestabilities die to cut out the square. One pearl for each card and a sentiment from Flourishes - and voilà!

I might have to make these in other colors too:)

Thanks so much for stopping by today!
