B-LIME-Y!!!

Challenges

Truly Scrumptious (29) - Sketch (Fly Away)
Creative Inspiration (31) - Lime Green/Black/Flowers

Well! The colour challenge for this one took me right out of my comfort zone! The colour combo does not appeal to me at all, but, that's what a challenge is for, right?

Following the great sketch I layered up the base card with a combination of papers and cardstock (the nearest I could find to lime green). The main flower has just been glittered along with me and the craft room!!! The butterflies have been punched out of hologram paper with my brand new MS punch. The one at the top is double layered while the other two are just stuck on. I finished it off with a few flower gems here and there.

Card Recipe

Stamp - Dawn Bibby
Papers - Shabby Princess
