All Things Green!

This week, Color My Heart Color Dare is challenging us with "Pick your Greens" You can use 1, 2, 3, 4 or 5 of these CTMH greens  (Sweet Leaf, New England Ivy, Fern, Emerald or Willow) with White Daisy. Using Gold is optional.  I have chosen to use Sweet Leaf, Fern and New England Ivy to create my card.  These colors were selected because they blend so well together. I lifted the design from the 2017 Seasonal Expressions 1, page 30.


The background paper is from the Whimsey Fundamental assortment.  Cardstock used is White Daisy and New England Ivy.  Other patterned papers are both CTMH and are from my ever growing scrap stash.  Stamp sets used are Dreamin' Big-Cardmaking and the WYW Here for You Cardmaking Kit.  Although not really evident in the picture, the butterfly and the scroll are both heat embossed with gold. I used Gold Glitter Paper as a mat and embellished with dots from the Black and White Dots.

  1. Love the combination of your design papers and Paper Fundamentals, and framing with Gold...also great embossing of the gold butterfly and flourish. I never think to look in the inspiration books for a sketch and this is a good one. Thanks again for sharing with us at Color Dare.
