Simple and Neutral?

Just a quick post to share a card I made at the weekend but have only just got around to posting and I f I don't do it soon the deadline at Less is More will have passed.


I started this  card thinking I would use it for a DT post but then decided to go with another card so this was spare so to speak.
I 'd seen a card I liked, somewhere out there and made a note of it, but can I heck as like find it again, so please have my apologies if you think it is based on yours! I must make better notes.

The original card showed sequins and hole punches around a central sentiment, I realised that I could have a go using my MB Large Circle Burst and build a similar card. As the colour theme at LIM is 'Neutrals', I used shades of grey with a few gold hi lights and my new set of MFT blueprints dies to make a frame.
The center is made up of a stamped circle from Dee's Artsy Impressions, Flowers and Frames in Memento Grey Flannel o the base card and two MFT stitched circles stacked inside, one in the same grey as the main panel and linen effect gold onto which I stamped Thank You from the Dee's AI set Balloons and Banners and embossed in white. 
The sequins and pearls were stuck randomly in the die cut holes and some of the original die were left in the small outer holes.
So that's about it, quite simple.

I'd like to join in over at -
