Less is More week 57 Colour

Evening all, well I'm still waiting for that phone call!! In the mean time I thought I'd better get on with the new LIM challenge which is a colour one and this time Chrissie and Mandi want us to use NEUTRALS.  That covers off white to black with any shade of beige, brown or grey in between.
This is what I came up with:
                                                                                                               

This is a cream pearlised base card with a strip of brown card stock across the centre. The small rectangles were distressed with Crumb Cake and Soft Suede and then the middle two were stamped with this month's freebie from Craft Stamper.  The other stamp is fennel seed heads by Craft Fairy.
The sentiment is from my xyron printer and finished with 2 black pearls.

Thanks for taking the time to visit me and hopefully leaving a comment so that I can visit you:)

The frame is perfect around those silhouettes. I love silhouettes and they work really well with sepia tones.
