Stamp Off Stuck in Neutral Challenge

You are in for a wonderful Stamp Off challenge today!
It's Buffy's "Stuck in Neutral" challenge.

Our challenge is to use neutral colors from
the Stampin' Up! collection on page 141.  I think 
that this is a good challenge for all three of us.
I suspect that Susan will include some Sahara Sand, 
her favorite neutral (not mine, however).  Thank goodness
that Stampin' Up! includes a variety of colors with coordinating
accessories, so that there is something for everyone
(even those with a hankering for some Sahara).

I actually love working with (most) neutrals.  They are so rich
and elegant when layered together.  
In this example, I used the "Timeless Textures" set
on page 29 of the Occasions catalog.  The sentiment comes
from the "You've Got This" set on page 113 in the regular catty.

The colors that I selected for this card are 
Very Vanilla, Crumb Cake and Early Espresso.  
I added the Venetian Crochet Trim from
page 159, and Pearls to increase texture and elevate the card.

So now that you've checked out my card, please hop
on over to see Buffy and Susan, "Stuck in Neutral"!
We'll also see if Susan included her favorite neutral!
