Wild Green Flowers

Today I've mixed several challenges for my card.

 The layout came from this sketch at Mojo Monday

the theme is Wild Flowers and Grasses from Make My Monday

and the colour way from Simply Stampin where they want MONOCHROME with a dash of colour

I chose Green and White as my colours, with a hint of brown ( hopefully not too much?), and so as not to be too predictable for me at MMM, I resisted the urge to get out my sponges and do my favourite sponging technique, and went down the more CAS route.

This is my card

Here is a close up of the dragonfly on the wild flower

Recipe :
Card = Chocolate Chip, Pear Pizzazz, Whisper White, and White CB from MS
Stamps = Garden Silhouettes, Organic Grace, and Verve
Inks = Pear Pizzazz, and Chocolate Chip
Tools = Big Shot, Nestabilities, and Martha Stewart punch
Extras = 3D pads and ribbon

I'm not firing on all cylinders this afternoon, so I'll be back soon.

Oh, I must thank Vicky for sending my latest SU order which Louise brought around to Jacquelines crafting morning, and if you too love SU products you can order from Vicky here

Bye for now
