Tuesday Throwdown-Neutrals

It's time for the Tuesday Throwdown challenge #81 and the theme is 'neutrals'. My image provided by Stitchy Bear Digital Stamps is called Flowers All Over.  Because it is a silhouette, I went with white, black, and gray colors. I think it makes a pretty, feminine, birthday card or could be used for many occasions. I did her big hat out of the box. I don't know about you but I love the hats ladies used to wear.
Hope you'll join us this week.

Stunning card, Benzi! The colors are striking, but this still has a wonderful feminine feel. I really like how her hat is out of the box, too. I agree -- those old hats were marvelous! :-)
