Celebrate Neutrals

My first post on my new blog is for Our Creative Corner's challenge, light and dark neutrals.  I got some new DP paper and loved this door image on one of Bo Bunny's Timepiece Collection.  I cut it and rounded the top corners then distressed and inked around the edges.  The branch style flourishes were cut from the Sizzix decorative accent die and bark roll.  I then twisted it through some wired raffia all around the door.  I continued the bark roll with the bird and 'ribbon' strip behind the sentiment.  The bark roll was not the simplest thing to work with let me tell you, but I love the effect it gives!

Stamps:  Crackled background on DP by Rubber Stampede.  Sentiment by TLC printed in black and brown.
Paper:  Cream and brown cardstock; DP-Antique Dark by pebblesinc.com.; DP door paper - Bo Bunny Timepiece Collection.
Ink:  Timber brown, black.
Extras:  Cream wired raffia; Sizzix decorative accent die; Tim Holtz Bird die; Nestability label die; antique metal brads; corner punch; bark roll.
