Green Love

This card is totally out of the norm for me!  I'm not a pattern mixer by nature but just kinda went all crazy on this one!  ;) Here's a tip for you to add some texture. Emboss a pattern using Versamark & Iridescent Ice Embossing Powder then stamp directly over it. I used this on the flowers. 

I used the SUO Challenge #40: It's Fun Being Green and this great sketch below from The Sweet Stop to create my design.

Supplies: All Stampin' Up!
Cardstock: Very Vanilla, Pear Pizzazz, Soft Suede
Ink: Marina Mist, Old Olive, Versamark
Stamps: Sprinkled Expressions, For All You Do
Paper: Everyday Enchantment Designer Series Paper
Accessories: Iridescent Ice Embossing Powder, Big Shot, Top Note Die, 1 3/4" Circle Punch, Brights Brads

Have a fab day!
Julz  :)

Very pretty Julz. Loving the flowers and the lovely blue colors. Love how you tucked that strip of DP behind the images. Thank you for playing along with us at The Sweet Stop this week. Great take on the sketch!

How pretty! Love the blues and greens...so fresh and springy looking! What a great idea extending the flowers up onto the DP layer! Thanks for joining us at The Sweet Stop this week, Julz!
