Flourishes Challenge



This is a first for me ... I have never entered a challenge at Flourishes ... but having seen the gorgeous work of the DT .. I though I would check it out ... The challenge is Bring back Beautiful .. "Neutrals" ... and the incredibly talented Beate Johns is hosting ... I just hope I got it right with my colours ... 



Dottie paper is SU and I can't remember who makes the other one ... sorry ... The dress form is a digital freebie from Cemerony  and the little card is also a digital from Iralamija's Etsy



A piece of scrap black card and a piece of material from my stash together with some lace and a resin rose complete the card ...
Do you think this fits the challenge? I hope so ... either way I loved making it ...

Till soon

I just loved your DT creation for this weeks' challenge at CCCB but this one is jaw-dropping gorgeous too. I love your color schemes; you always seem to make the perfect choice for papers and embellishments. And now using neutrals... Your card is a perfect balance of colors, patterns and embelisshments.
