I was once called the "Queen of Green" by Sarah at The Stamp Shack because I often made cards with green as the primary color. If you could see my ribbon supply, you would be amazed to see the majority of my ribbon is in different shades of green. I've never considered green my favorite color, but apparently it is when it comes to cardmaking!
Anyway, isn't this week's Raspberry Suite Color Challenge just PERFECT for the "Queen of Green"?! :) I *love* that photo and wish I had those fabulous cream & black dishes and linens! Oh, and while I'm wishing...I'll take that hutch and the beautiful GREEN walls too! :) Thank you to Dawn McVey at My Favorite Things for the inspiration photo she took at the Nell Hill's store in Atchison, Kansas. It definitely inspired me!
So what do you think of my GREEN card created especially for this challenge? I don't have the Papertrey cardstock, so used Stampin Up's green galore, basic black and very vanilla. I've used the Stampin Up polka dot background stamp and Versafine onyx black ink. I like it because it's such a nice sharp black. On the vanilla carstock, I stamped "You Make Me Smile" and used a clear embossing powder on top of the black ink. The stamp is an oldie and one of my favorites from Denami Design. I've used the retro flower punch and layered on a green "Big Blossom" button by Favorite Findings. (Walmart) On top of that, I put a smaller black button with green sparkly flakes. These three layers are tied together with some creme colored crochet thread.
This evening has certainly flown by and it's almost past my bedtime! And I haven't even played Wordscaper on Facebook with my daughter and sister yet... one of my favorite things to do online now, besides blogging, of course! If you like to play Scrabble, you'll *love* Wordscraper! I can say that tonight because I've *finally* won a couple games! Believe me, that's an accomplishment playing against those two!
So, that's all folks! Have a fantastic week and GO GREEN!!!
