Green and Blue

Do you now just LOVE how fresh green and blue look together? They always look natural, fresh, clean and spring like. I am super happy playing with these colours. I live in these colours, in fact my entire house is decorated in shades of blue and green.

I made this card to play along with Sketches{by Tamara}. I have just recently found this challenge blog and it has a wide variety of challenges daily. If you enjoy challenges you should hop on over and give it a try too!

The Flourish is painful, it was hand cut off a piece of MME paper. It took forever. But I think it was worth it, I really like how it turned out. The flower is also another sheet of MME, and this is 3 layers of flowers fut out, layered with pop dots, and then stickles to finish the look. While this is not your average quick card, it is easy. it just takes time to do the cutting.

Snip some paper tonight, you may find you enjoy fine detailed work too!

It's all in the Ingredients:
Paper- WW green, MME Every Day Tango,PTI white
Ink- Color Box-Prussian Blue Chalk
Embellishments- SU! corner rounder punch, hole punch, ribbon, pop dots, Amuse Bling, Stickles- Star Dust
