This week, The Shabby Tea Room has a new challenge with this lovely photo as inspiration.
The challenge is to take a neutral color from the photo and use one other color to create a project.   I chose to use cream as the neutral and gold as the color to create my card. 

The frame and butterfly were cut from the HOME ACCENTS cartridge.  I embossed the inside of the frame and the base of the card for some texture.  I added some vintage lace to the card.  I really think it gives the card a little something special.  The "dream" stamp is from Whimsy Stamps. And the flower, pearl and gold stickers, and ribbon all came from Hobby Lobby.  

The card may be a little busy and over the top, but, I am happy with the results.
