Less is More - 3 shades of green

What am I like!
No posts for a week and then a flurry at the

I missed the LIM challenge last week and although I'm not a fan of 'green only' cards,
I thought I'd give it a go this week.
Here's the link so you can join in too :)

It was hard to resist adding another colour...but I did it!

I made a stencil with the Cameo and sponged 3 different green inks through it .
They were Color Box pigment inks - rainforest (I think)
The layered flowers are Prima and I cut a thin strip of green sponged card
and threaded it through the button.

(a quick and easy way to make the button appear stitched)
The 'hello' and 'friend' stamps are by SU and are stamped
with Chocolate Chip ink and punched out with the Jewellery tag punch.
Then sponged around the edges with green ink.

Thanks for visiting and I'll be back on Monday with some Easter treat bags.

I hope you all have a lovely Easter
and I hope the weather in the UK turns a bit warmer too!

Take care
Sarah xx

That's a great card Sarah and you've given me a push to get mine started. I've missed the last couple of weeks being distracted by other things but I'll definitely have a go at this one. Thanks for the flower tip - it looks good.
