Neutral


Neutrals are creeping back into the papercrafting world after a brief pause. For a long while, there was a love affair with all things brown which took a back seat whilst people rediscovered the joy of colour. And now I'm noticing that the neutral family is making a quiet reappearance. And as evidenced by the Play Date Cafe challenge this week, it's a welcome return as it can look fantastically elegant, classy and timeless.

My entry for this week's challenge is a clean and graphic style card. A strip of patterned paper (no idea who the manufacturer is), a Hero Arts stamped sentiment, three buttons and lots of lovely, clean white space.
