Subtle Tones

Very subtle tones are on the menu this week at the Play Date Cafe.
Mint, buttercream and taupe with which I created a card.
The papers are an old selection from BasicGrey which fitted the colour challenge perfectly.
I used Spellbinders Nestabilities to cut the circles and stamped with Luscious Floral Background from Hero Arts.
The bird has been cut from the same papers using the Caged Bird die, adding a crown embellishement for added dimension. A ribbon, button and fragment complete my piece.

Thanks for stopping by, Tracy x x

Oh my gosh. This super! The crown on the bird is too fabulous! Love the choice of stamp and images. The circles and bird combined add a gorgeous loftiness to your well made card. Awesome!

These soft colours really suit your style Tracy. I love how the bird has a little crown and the HA floral background looks FAB! I might just 'need' that set now too! Thanks so much for playing along with us at The Play Date Cafe this week!
