Earth tones

Hello my dear friends! I hope you've been enjoying your week so far. I had a terrible headache yesterday, but I'm ffeling much better today so I can't complain. Plus, I don't have to go to work tomorrow, so that's even better. He he.

Have you entered our "anything goes with ribbon" challenge at Crafty ribbons challenge blog yet? Not yet? I hope you will! You still have one week to enter your creations in the challenge. Who knows, luck might be on your side this time and it will be you who will win the amazing ribbon prize that Ali and Tony are offering.

The other day I was playing with my leftover pieces of paper and my dies and here's the card I made with them ...

I bought a whole pack of kraft paper a short while ago and couldn't wait to start using it (this is the only thing that wasn't a leftover scrap lol). So I used it for the back of my card and then added a piece of white cardstock, which I embossed with Cuttlebug's embossing folder over it. I inked the edges with TH antique linen distress ink. The yellow cardstock and the green paper are just some leftover scraps of paper that I had in my drawer for a while. I punched the edges on the yellow cardstock with my border punch. The ribbons are from Crafty ribbons - I used the khaki grosgrain ribbon, which is currently out of stock, but there are many other colours available so have a look at the other grosgrain ribbons and the lemon polka dot ribbon. The big flower was made with TH Tattered floral die. Behind the flower I added a piece of white cardstock over which I stamped with Viva decor stamp. For stamping I used TH distress ink. On the side I used gold sequins. The swirls are part of Marianne design flower die and the corner is Spellbinders die. The butterflies are made with my craft punch.

I would like to add my card to the following challenges:
Deep ocean: Ribbons and/or laces
