Vintage Crumb Cake and Blossoms Card

Today's card is in beautiful neutrals for a color story... Crumb Cake and Soft Suede, with an added pop of Marina Mist.  I've paired Flower Shop with Kinda Eclectic for a vintage look.  
Of course, I had to use a little Gorgeous Grunge, too.  That's a stamp set that I don't even bother to put away any more because I use it most every day.
You'll notice that I have stamped the blossoms in Marina Mist and then sponged them in Crumb Cake.  It makes a nice pop of blue against the neutral background.
Tip for easy linen thread loops:
- Wrap linen thread around 2 fingers 3 times.
- Then wrap linen thread around 3 fingers 3 times.
- Cut and tie ends.
The leaves are stamped on the inside of the card as well as a coordinating Crumb Cake envelope.  Because you use punches for the flowers and the butterflies, it's a pretty quick card to make.
