Sweet Stampin Challenge

Good morning all, it's Saturday and that means it's time for another Sweet Stampin' challenge and this week we want to see your GREEN creations in honour of St Patrick's day! I thought green would be easy.... well, I had so many shades to choose from I didn't know which one to pick, so I've teamed it with some purple which is a colour combo I really like. Although you wouldn't know it. All the cards I've made recently seem to be orangey....

So this week we are sponsored by Emerald Faerie Garden

who were kind enough to give the DT some of their images to play with.

We also have our usual monthly sponsor in Joanna Sheen.

I was going to try and use my friend's Marianne swirly flower die (if that's the technical name for it) but it was all a bit foutery to me and I ended up with flowery buttons instead.

Challenges I'd like to enter:

Pile it On - Shades of Green
Make it Monday
Papertake - For Girls/Mum
Fab N Funky - The Luck of the Irish
Cute Card Thursday - Happy Birthday
DYSU - Favourite Colour
Cardmadfairy's Digi Days - Add A Sentiment
Simon Says Stamp - A Bit of Green
Fussy and Fancy - Fairies
Use it Tuesday - Green
Kaboodle Doodles - Green

Image - Isabella, Emerald Fairies, coloured with Promarkers, Sentiment, LotV
Cardstock/Paper - From Stash
Embellishments - Flowery buttons, lace doiley, button twine, ribbon and glamour dust

Don't forget to pop by the Sweet Stampin blog to see all the fab GREEN inpsiration my fellow teamies have left for you - and you could maybe even visit their blogs and leave them some love :)
Thanks for dropping by today. Have a fabulous Saturday whatever you're up to.

Hugs. Susan xxx

I love the purple alongside the green - it works brilliantly! As for the flower die, it was a bit of a pain in the you-know-what as I had to use a quilling tool to roll the things! Have a lovely weekend xx

Kim said...
