Lime & Green

This week at Less is More the challenge is a colour one.
Lime and Green are what we were given to work with - I finished one but have another in mind so who knows I may well get to put in 2 entries this week if I get my act together!!

I used the usual linen textured cardstock and in the scrap box found some bits of papers left over from the Basic Grey 'Sultry' pad.

This was a quick card and am pleased with the finished result.
The black frame was also cut from linen textured card.
I used a punch for the butterfly and dabbed a wee bit of Versa Ink across it in 'Key Lime' colour.
The black gems are from my stash as a girly has to have a bit of bling!
Sentiment stamped with black Versafine.

(Now that I've taken a pic of this card it looks less Lime than it does 'in real life' !)

Am also popping across to the 'Playground' this week with my 'sultry snippets' - and try not to spread my germs!

Thanks to all of you who have left me get well wishes - cough is not as bad but lingering!

  1. I think Lime must be a difficult colour to photograph `cos mine doesn`t look very limey. Yours is lovely, love the butterfly trail.
    Hope your cough gets better soon. My daughter has had hers for weeks.
