Double D - Neutrals

Hello Everyone!
Thanks for stopping by today!
It's time at the Double D Challenge Blog for a new challenge
and the theme this time around is 

 NEUTRALS

Check out this awesome tile board they have created
to help inspire you.

 I wasn't sure what direction I wanted to go with today's card
so I just started looking through my neutral toned images and spotted
this beauty from PION Design 'French Ladies' (PD3111) collection to use as my focus.


I also purchased some 'Paris' type dies to use for creations
commissioned from a local store I create cards for.  So when I saw
this image had Paris 1889 imprinted on it, I just knew
I had to die cut a few of these Paris style dies for embellishments.

I hope you'll come join in the challenge fun
and by all means pop over to see what the design teams 
have created!  Such talented designers!!

OH and there's also a prize being offered . . .
pop over HERE for all the details.
