Green is not my favourite colour, but...

... I quite like how this one turned out. I had an order for a green card and just could not get my head around it because I hardly ever use green on my cards or scrapbook pages. I couldn't find any green patterned paper that I liked (I know there are loads of beautiful papers out there, I just don't do green, OK? LOL), so I took a piece of white cardstock, some green inks and some stamps and started playing. The results are pretty cool, don't you think?

In fact, so does my son. He claimed the card when he came home to visit and now I have to make another one for my order!
The only things I used on this card was Bazzil cardstock, three shades of green colorbox inks, some ribbon and pearld from Kaiser Kraft. This was so much fun to do, I think I might just make my own background papers more often.
Today is my last day home on holiday, DH and I are going to a friend's farm in the Northern Cape for the weekend and school starts on Monday, so I will HAVE to do everything I have been leaving for a month today. Nothing creative, but I have only myself to blame I suppose. My marks have to be in on Monday, and those essays are most definately not going to mark themselves!
