This is for color challenge 399 - Whisper White or Very Vanilla, Cherry Cobbler and Old Olive. I used both WW and VV and I also brazenly added some Spring Moss, but both the Cherry Cobbler and the Old Olive are there, a particular challenge for me since these colors really scream Christmas (in a good way) and I didn't want to make a Christmas card. I needed that Spring Moss (and the foregoing of this week's dessert: silver) to de-Christmas-ize things! My BG - done in Soft Suede on VV, is not DP, but a layering of two Cover a Card stamps. Just so you know. In fact, my package of 11 new Cover a Card stamps arrived on Monday evening so I think it's pretty amazing I got a challenge card done at all this week considering what a distraction that delivery has been!
Thanks for looking!

I certainly like the look of your background, Rachel. I'm sure you're having fun playing with those stamps! Try them out on paper that you've done wrinkle free distress on , too - I think that works really well! You certainly did come up with a totally non Christmas card with those Christmassy colours, and the wispy swirls suggest grass to me, which goes so well with the floral image.
