Beige is no longer boring, it can be beautiful.

This is my first card as a member of the design team for the ABC challenge.
This week its Team B's turn for the letter N - Neutrals.
Our wonderful sponsors this week are Whimsy Stamps . I have used Chrissy's Little Angel available from them as a digi stamp. Isn't she just adorable?
 
 I coloured her using Copics and Prisma pencils in neutral shades, beige and browns. I always thought of beige as boring but not any more, I think shes just beautiful.
I used papers from a K and Co pad, flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts, some raffia lace, ribbon and felt swirls. Everything was distressed to within an inch of its life, I even added a bit of glitter to the edges of the flowers and swirls as well.
 
I carried the design onto the base of the Easel card, using a sentiment from Hot off the Press ( I think ).

I found this challenge hard at first as I'm not really a beige person, but once I found some papers and started to put it together, I really enjoyed making it and am quite proud of the end result. Hope it inspires you to try some thing out of your comfort zone.
I do hope that you can join us for the challenge and don't forget to pop over and see the rest of the DT's amazing creations.
