Double D Challenge - Neutrals

Dear Ones~
Still hot outside.....still feeling inelegant!!!

Today's offering was made for the Double "D" Challenge. This time we are invited to use neutrals. Look at this beautiful set of tiles for inspiration.

Here's My Card:
I recently got this stamp from Lavinia Stamps and I love it. It's called Fairy Thistles.  I heat embossed it with copper powder. I also used a die by Spellbinders from their Cut, Fold and Tuck collection for that corner border.

Here are the Ingredients:
GKD Dark Chocolate Card Stock
GKD Sandy Beach Card Stock
PTI Rustic Cream Card Stock
DCWV The Natural Patterned Paper
Spellbinders Cut, Fold & Tuck Diamond Strip and Accents
Lavinia Fairy Thistle Stamp
Ranger Copper Embossing Powder
MS Pine Bough Punch
Stash Button and Twine
Copper Stickles

I will also be entering this in:
 Lavinia August Creative Challenge - NO BLACK
 Penny Black - ANYTHING GOES
Simon Says Wednesday - MAKE FOR THE BORDER 
Scrapy Land - USE AN IMAGE

  6. Oh those thistles are fabulous! Your design and layout are fantastic! Great choice of Designer papers and your button and twine make for a wonderful accent. AND I adore that dragonfly, super cute! Spectacular dies too!

  7. Love that bold paper and die together with the fabulous image. Just gorgeous.That layout is sooo fabulous and works well with the papers. Go link this design up at Scrapy Land "Use an Image" challenge.

  8. All I can say is WOW! What a fantastic card! I love the colors and the design. What a layout! The thistles are really neat. I can see why you love them! Awesome dragonfly!

  9. WOW!!! Awesome card Judy. The previous comments say it all. I especially like the thistles and Spellbinders die

  10. Stunning Judy, love the design and mixture of papers, dies and stamp!

  11. BEautiful card my dear! Amazing job on the inspiration photo! Have a Blessed day!

  12. That is a beautiful stamp and I just love the copper embossing. I'd never heard of Lavinia stamps, so had to follow your link. I know it's a quirk of some kind, but the stamps are listed at between $1000 and $3000. I know that's not correct! Anyway, love that tuck and fold element and one of my favorite elements on your card is the pretty dragonfly. I love dragonflies! Judy, I'm so glad you played along in our Neutrals challenge at Double D!

  13. Oh Judy this card is drop dead gorgeous. So many beautiful elements here. You sure nailed the Double D challenge. I so love this card. I see so many beautiful Lavinia stamps used by our friend Cheryl and love how you inked up the thistle. Oh I LOVE this one to bits.

  14. So much to look at! Love the papers, diecuts and your pretty focal...great job!

  15. Oooo what a stunning image, am loving the diecut corner and layout, thanks for joining us at Penny Black & More this month, Luv Sam x
