You Are The Music - Shopping Our Stash

Hello, Crafty Peeps!
Time for another opportunity to reduce your Stash!  It is really nice to see that my stack of paper bits and pieces is slowly decreasing.  Each week at SOS, I get a chance to pull something from that stack to create my project.  This week, we are challenging you to use ONE COLOR.

 I really wanted to clear away some of my Rust colored paper.  I tend to get into cycles where I create cards in the same color family for weeks and weeks.  Earth tones are a staple for me...I love them!  Unfortunately, when I looked at my "all rust" card, it was just hard on the eyes
 I was excited to find that in my Graphic 45 Stash, I had several pieces of"Secret Garden" papers that coordinated perfectly with my palette and allowed me to introduce the much needed cream neutral.
The lovely "Prima Flowers"and the Label Die, are from my Amazing Birthday Haul given to me by my ever supportive Hubby!  The Fiber ribbon was also included in my haul.  
The cute little bird and flower charm was a gift from an online craft store.  
They include these little charms with each order and it is always fun to see what I will get! 

The inside is pretty simple!  
I just love my LaBlanche Harp Stamp; another item from my Birthday Haul!
The embossed panel is from my stash, as are the creme pearls.
