Something New

Good Morning.

Today's card is a bit of my comfort zone, for some reason I am not as easy using just neutrals in my cards. I always want to add a bit of colour somewhere.  However this weeks challenge at Dynamic Duos is to use neutrals, so I decided to challenge myself.

Supplies Used:
Inkadinkado - Fern Leaves
Tim Holtz Distress Ink - Pumice Stone and Frayed Burlap
Stampin Up - Twine
Stampin up - Sentiment

I am not sure of the end result, but I thought I would share it with you anyway and enter it into the Dynamic Duos challenge and also Pixie's Craft Snippets - Week 57

Off now to carry on watching the tennis.  Come on Andy!

Thanks for visiting


  1. What are you worrying about? I think this is beautiful, the fern stamp is really lovely. I always go for colour too but I really love these neutrals x

  2. Simply stunning, this is a gorgeous cas card. Hugs, Amanda x

  3. Fabulous neutrals card Gilly! You cracked it girl. Had to put the TV off earlier, couldn't stand the tension :( Hugs, Di xx

  4. Gorgeous card, Gilly. A simple idea so beautifully done - love the Kraft/white colour mix. Sadly, Andy didn't win the final, but didn't he do well! There's always next year :) Elizabeth xx

  5. You made a beautiful card in neutrals. Love the ferns in the circles. x

  6. What a super masculine card. I like the way you used the fern stamps and didn't add a bunch of embelishments. Perfect for a man. Thanks for joining us at Dynamic Duos this week!

  9. I'd say you won the challenge with yourself on this, Gillian! You should use neutrals more often. I love the fern fronds in these colors and the classic layout you've used is perfect to showcase them!!
