Glorious Greens


is the colour theme for the Gingersnap Creations challenge
& this is the card I made for my MIL's birthday tomorrow.

Firstly I used 3 or 4 green distress inks to make the background which I then cut into squares & backed with dark green.


I added the ribbon & buttons & the birthday sentiment stamped with green stazon ink, mounted on white card.


The flower/vase image was stamped using the green stazon again & cut out leaving the white border.


The butterflies were punched using my Martha Stewart punch in the dark green backing paper for the base & multi coloured greens for the top, which I enhanced with crackle medium (doesn't show too well in the photo)

So there you have it - Happy Birthday MIL!

Lovely card. Green is a much underused colour in crafting I feel.

I am sure she will appreciate this beautiful card - love all the subtle greens blending into each other to form the card.
