Cream and navy

Greetings! I'm currently in Las Vegas in business meetings for the three days! Hopefully I'll be able to get some gambling time in...my elbow needs a work out! The following card was created based upon a picture that I just saw on Pinterest - it was a color combo that featured grey and navy. I added some cream to it and this is what I came up with.

The grosgrain ribbon doesn't perfectly match the cardstock which really bums me out! I even tried to color some ribbon with Copic's to see if I could match the cardstock, but stuck out. Oh well, in real life it looks pretty decent.

Stamps are from Papertrey Ink (can you tell that I got a shipment recently? LOL). The wheat like plant is stamped in Colorbox ink of some color or another. It says dusty plum, but I think it looks more wheat. Sentiment is stamped in jet black Archival ink.

Navy and grey cardstock is from Bazzill and the vintage cream is from PTI. I would really like to hear what you think about this one! Thanks for stopping in!
