Just Us Girls Challenge in Creme and Brown

Just Us Girls has a sketch challenge this week. Check it out ...was a fun sketch.
I decided to do a card with only a verse and patterned paper. No image.
Have made so many cards that are bright and spring like lately, I went more subdued and sophisticated in my design for this project. I selected papers from DCWV's La Creme Mat stack, one of which has flocking.  Started with base card of solid, layered with a dotted pattern, layered with strips of floral that are flocked and each matted  with solid brown.  Topped with square mats (light and dark) and  then a circle stamped with verse. Finished with cutouts of flowers from the patterned paper and a ribbon of ivory and gold organza. 

Stamps: GKD "Inside and Outside"
Cardstock: DCWV La Creme Mat Stack
 Base Card from Stash
Ink: SU Basic Brown
Ribbon: Flower Factory

Card from a "Sophisticated Lady" (not)
Thanks for stopping by,
