Going Green

Hi everyone,


It’s St. Patrick’s Day on Saturday and nearly everyone is going green so I have joined in.


I have used one of my favourite greens – Old Olive, for the base of my card with a small amount of the DSP Paisley Petals.


I have tried to stay as green as possible but there is a little hint of colour in the DSP and I have stamped the Hello Blossoms stamp in Early Espresso and punched out the letters.  The word ‘hello’ has been added to the Always Artichoke image with Dimensionals.


For a contrast colour I have used River Rock other than that I am pretty green.





Stamp set: Hello Blossoms

Card: Old Olive, River Rock, Whisper White
Ink: Always Artichoke, Early Espresso

Accessories:  Oval Punch (Retired), Elegant Lines Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack, 5/8” (1.6 cm) Organza Ribbon Whisper White, Always Artichoke Grosgrain Ribbon (retired), Paisley Petals DSP, Basic Rhinestones, Dimensionals, SNAIL Adhesive



I have also used some of the Whisper White Organza Ribbon and layered some retired Always Artichoke Grosgrain Ribbon.
