Cameo Spotlight Challenge Time

Hello, everyone! Time for another Cameo Spotlight Challenge. This time it's a color challenge!

The challenge was to use Slate Blue/Gray, Sage Green and Beige. And we could also use neutral colors of Black, White and Kraft. I frequently find color challenges difficult, but somehow I managed to use all 6 colors for this card. I won't tell you how long it took me to conceive and execute this card, let's just say it took me a long time and leave it at that. And here it is:

I have to confess that I'm the only person I know that it takes a tremendous amount of effort and planning to create a "simple" looking card. I guess it would be simple to re-create it, and I'll have to settle for that being what makes it "simple".

All of the cuts I used are from the Silhouette store. The card base, rolled flowers, leaves and labels. I thoroughly enjoyed using my Cameo as it cut everything just the way I wanted it to, the first time around. In addition to card stock and Silhouette store images, I used some twine, a couple eyelets and a stamped image for the sentiment. I'm really happy with how this card turned out and I will be giving it to someone I love very much.

Thanks to the Cameo Spotlight Challenge blog for challenging me to play along. And thanks to all of you who have taken the time to look and comment.
