Shades of green....

Hi all!

I had a miserable day yesterday - wasn't it just awful!! I set myself a challenge in the morning to put my hand in my scrap box and bring out some paper and then make 2 cards using bits to match it was green!

The papers I had picked out are actually from a retired set called Le Jardin, but I really love it as the colours are very neutral and the designs are just gorgeous!

I used Mellow Moss, Sage Shadow and Barely Banana CS and papers from the Le Jardin, and then used Old Olive Ribbon, and the Curvy Verses sentiment (these are so versatile that I can highly recommend them!)

I then used some of the pearls from the Pretties Kit to accent the flowers

I used the stamp from Mr & Mrs stamp set - I use this one such a lot as it looks good on any type of card!

I stamped the image and sentiments using Old Olive

I was actually quite pleased with the way they turned out!

Right off to a BBQ now - thank goodness the weather is brighter....
