Ahead of the Trend

Hello all. I have a card to show you today that I made for a monthly card swap group that I am in. The guidance for this month was to keep it minimal. No more than two layers including the base. No more than two embellishments. Now the inspiration for my card has been all the white/yellow/grey color combos I've been seeing on pinterest. I like think I may have been ahead of the trend when I designed my Greeting Farm card with those colors over a year ago. You have to understand I'm normally behind the curve on any type of trend so to be ahead for once is a shocker. Here is my CAS card for the swap. I hope the girls like it.
For my card I used a white PTI base. I then stamped the Tim Holtz flourish in Stampin' Up Going Grey. The desinger papers are from Cosmo Cricket and October Afternoon. The ribbon is by Stampin' Up. I create a the flower by free hand cutting three different sized circles and scrunching them. I glued the layers together and added the button and ribbon. I then stamped the sentiment from PTI.

Thank you for visiting and have a wonderful day.
