Plain or Not Too Plain?

I've had a hankerin lately to do something in vanilla & white.  Too bad I didn't have a wedding to attend on the horizon... so instead I decided in the end to go with a birthday theme.

I had fun working with the different Spellbinder & MFT dies, but honestly I was really wanting to add some colour.  I snuck a yellow rose in at the end just to add a focal point because the whole thing was just putting me to sleep!!  Maybe it's just too "wedding-ish" ??  I dunno...I've seen others do the white/vanilla theme and my jaw drops.  But I may try it again with some COLOUR.

Here's the inside.........(caution:  ZZZZZzzzzzzzzzz's ahead)

I used a mixture of pearls & brads with some sheer ribbon.  Stamps are from Just Rite.  Along with the SB & MFT dies, I used a MS punch at the bottom along with an embossing folder.  A little machine stitching finished it off.   And a long nap finished me off.
