No Patterned Paper Challenge

The Kraft Journal has a challenge beginning today - No Patterned Paper.
This is definitely a challenge because I use patterned paper on almost all my cards.

The main panel is Buff Ivory Cardstock.  This is beautiful cardstock that has a bit on texture that looks like linen.  I embossed the flowers with the Cuttlebug embossing folder, With Love" adding a piece of Leaves and Birds Washi tape between the two rows of flowers.  After I put the Happy Birthday sticker on the Small Grungy Prim Tag, I attached it with a piece of green cord from the Dark Jewel Hemp Cord collection.   The flower and button (yes, a real one this time!) is from my stash. The leaves were cut with a Cuttlebug die.  The final touch was the distressing the edges of the Buff Ivory Cardstock with Tim Holz distressing ink and then gluing it to SU Green Garden.
Hope you like it and hope you will play along with the No Patterned Paper Challenge at the Kraft Journal.
