City Crafter Challenge #97

I'm down to the wire
on this, but I didn't want to miss out. Linda chose a theme of "It's All Natural" for the City Crafter Challenge of using all natural colors on your project. 


This is what I made...


Along with ivory cardstock, I 
used Basic Grey's 6x6 Basic Manila Paper Pad and Glitz 6x6 French Kiss Paper Pack. Did a bit of machine stitching and some distressing with my paper distresser and Antique Linen Distress Ink.



Added ivory lace at the
bottom and Recollections bling. I cut a strip of fabric from a vintage lace hankie then gathered and sewed it across the middle of the card. I topped it with Prima leaves from their Lovely Leaves collection and a Elysa White flower. Put in fern pieces that were made using Spellbinder's Foliage Set. Also used their Floral Doily Motifs for that top piece that is embellished with Recollections pearls.
Now to get this entered at CCCB!

Thanks for stopping by today!
Hugs!
Linda

You've captured the feel of the Natural challenge at CCCB perfectly, Linda. Love that rosette! I tried making my own flower from ribbon yesterday, but I just do not have the right touch.
