I swear, every challenge out there seems to want to use green lately. I have even skipped challenges cause they were using pistachio pudding... But, I guess everyone is looking for Spring and what screams Spring more than the sprigs of green sprouting up from the muddy lawn. Although I swear here in Ottawa we are never going to see it! There is still so much SNOW!!!
So today, I decided to enter the Colour Me...! challenge in which they are going monochromatic and using Old Olive.
I also decided that I really liked one of the DT's cards and decided that I would put my own spin on it. I cased OttawaMom's (Brenda Hofstatter's) card today. I also drew inspiration from the inspiration picture provided above. I knew a large, pouffy flower had to be my focal point!
I also used the CAS(E) this Sketch challenge sketch to complete my card. Unfortunately, I dilly dallied this morning organizing some of DSP's and missed the link-up deadline for this challenge by about an hour. I thought it was later today...oh well...it is still a fabulous sketch by Julie.
Here is my card this morning:
I absolutely love heat embossing - especially with white embossing powder! It makes such a lovely effect.
