Sugar Creek Hollow vintage color challenge

This week we have a color challenge for you.  We are challenging you to use neutral colors only. 
Papers must be KRAFT, OFF-WHITE, and/or GRAYS - 
NO white, black or brown. 
It is OK to use some color in the image.
Remember this is, as always a VINTAGE challenge.
For my card I chose several different shades of gray and some off-white.

I created a vintage feel without an image this week by distressing the edges on many of the elements,
using pearls, an antique looking cross
and SEVERAL different Spellbinders dies.  I think I used 7 in all.
The cream flowers were stamped with a flower stamp from Rubber Stampede
and cut out by hand.  The smaller, gray flower is a SB die.

Here's the inside.

My card elements...

Spellbinders dies
Sympathy phrase:  Hampton Arts
Inside phrase: I Brake For Stamps
Inside flowers and leaves on front: We are Memory Keepers (2 step clear stamps)
Flower on front: Rubber Stampede
Satin Ribbon
Cross: Blue Moon charms

I hope you'll play along in our VINTAGE COLOR CHALLENGE.
To enter your creation just go to the Sugar Creek Hollow challenge blog.
