Noteworthy Neutrals

The Memory Box challenge this month is 'Noteworthy Neutrals' (cream, white, black, brown, grey), so I decided to use just brown and cream on my card.

I started with a square, cream card blank and die cut a brown and a cream Memory Box 'Fairytale Flower Border', adding the brown die cut to the right hand side.  The e/f I used is Couture Creations 'Chain Link'. I snipped off the top half of the cream die cut and attached it over the embossing.   A strip of striped ribbon, in shades of brown and cream, was attached between the embossed side and the plain side.  The computer generated sentiment was die cut using  a Memory Box 'Stitched Rectangle' die.  

I am joining in the following challenges:

An elegant card - nice idea to use a partial die cut element on one side with the whole thing on the other.
