Crafty Sentiments 'Neutral Colours' Challenge

Good morning all. 

Today see another new challenge over at Crafty Sentiment Designs and this week our challenge is 'Neutral Colours'. I have never made a card or anything come to that in neutral colours before so found it really quite difficult to start but I ended up really enjoying it.

I used another of this month's new release called 'Primrose Autumn Leaves', isn't she cute? I added the little flower with button which I made after seeing one on Bev's Blog aka 'All The Things I Love' . I just gathered some seam binding and  then added my wooden button with embroidery thread and used hot glue to add it to my card. I think it is quite effective.
