Black and Lime and Bright Blossoms


Happy Sunday Folks.  A quick post today as we are out later on to Doonies Farm as a birthday treat to my daughter who will be 11 on Tuesday.  Hope the snow goes off.  Brrrr!! 

I've made my card for two challenges - Less is More which has a colour theme of Lime and Black.  Yummy combo!! and CASe This Sketch.


So here's the run down of how I've made this card.  The card base is Whisper White and I started by stamping the trellis from Summer Silhouettes in Basic Black.  I then made my little tag element using Basic Black card stock and Whisper White.  I punched the corners using a 1/2" Circle Punch.  I stamped some flowers from Bright Blossoms in Basic Black.  The vase was stamped on some scrap with Lucky Limeade and a Basic Black Stampin' Write Marker.  I matched it up with a flower head again using a Basic Black marker to add the black dot.  The vase was fussy cut out and popped up on some Dimensionals.  I made a sentiment banner using Lucky Limeade and Itty Bitty Banners

Love the way this has turned out with just the pop of colour. 

Only 1 place left in my Stampers 6.  It's not too late to snap up that last place.  What would you choose each month?  Have a look at my Virtual Hostess Page to see the details. 

OK snow is off so time to wrap up and brave the weather!  Thanks for visiting.  x
