MFW The Neutrals challenge

French Vanilla, Twig, and Smoky
Here is my Wonderful Friend card using these three colours for the Neutrals Challenge for Card Makers Week  at Moxie Fab World and I am using the Verve VLVJAN2011 week 4 sketch.
I am using the Bazzill Twig for the card front, Spellbinders Label and the simple SU scalloped border, the Smoky was put through the CuttleBug with a Sissix folder and the gorgeous wreath is a MemoryBox stamp.  I stamped the wreath in SU crumb cake onto the Bazzill French Vanilla (the SU crumb cake ink is quite close to the Bazzill Twig, sorta ;)  I added some colour to the berries using the a bluish gray Copic marker (the closest I could determine to Bazzill Smoky) plus I used a beige Copic to adjust the little bird's colour. (in a previous life he was attached to a paperclip and living at Anthropologie...I bought a little flock of them;)  
The sentiment is from the PTI anniversary set Round and Round. 
The ivory Japanese ribbon is some that I bought at my local yarn shop.  I am not sure how this would knit up...but it would be an expensive scarf as it is sold by the yard!
Are you playing along for these MFW Color Challenges?  Let me know if you are and what your favourite colour combo is.

I hope to be back with another colour group later today or early tomorrow.
Thanks for looking...hope you are warm and cozy,
