a rerun in green. green?

Green, as I may have mentioned before, is not my favorite color. It's great for Kermit. And the plants and trees in my garden. But not my cards.

So when Colour Q went and did this, I figured it would be a good challenge for me.



And I paired it with Winnie and Walter's rerun of a stamp set I don't have, but I improvised. And drew inspiration from this card of Lydia's.

I pulled out WW True and silver heat embossed a couple borders in a nod to the rows of garlands on Lydia's card. Then I colored in a few triangles with Distress and Zig markers in Colour Q colors. Stamped and partially heat embossed a sentiment.

Sponged Distress Inks in Mowed Lawn, Shabby Shutters and Broken China onto Neenah CS and die cut WW Friend from it and from white CS. Adhered it offset a la Lydia (this is actually what originally caught my eye on Lydia's card!).

Added a vellum die cut branch and voila!


I chose this word die cuz I want to play at Mod Squad where it's about "Friendship". And the inking from green to blue qualifies my card for the "Ombre" challenge over at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday.

Happy Friday! If we're lucky we might be seeing our first snow of the season this weekend...
