Going Green!




Good day!
Finally the idea strike me, yesterday afternoon while I was busy watching rugby. The Outlawz colour challenge this week is: New grass green, Classic Green Lime and Prairie Sage with the twist of a leave(CC050112). Not that I have a problem with the green, but nothing would come together. The peacock is the freebie at the new Digistamp4Joy. They are under new management and they have a few very talented artists in their group.....so pop over and join them. The other challenge I really wanted to join, which I tend to forget, since they moved monthly, is Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge MMSC138. Luckily they have a CAS style option as well, though I'm still playing with options on the alternative sketch as well. The papers is from my stash and I used a cuttlebug border emboss folder. The peacock, is maybe to small, but I wanted to keep the card a bit CAS, was coloured with aquarelles and then I used some perfect pearl  in forever green and purple. Dotted some glitter in peacock blue as a final touch. The peel-off sentiment says Best Wishes.
Other challenges I'm joining is:
Shelly's images TTT 3/5- Don't punch me - no punches or diecuts.
Divas by design # 33 - Monocromatic
Sunday's with Crissy #29 - Things with wings
2 Sister's Challenge Blog #90 - Anything goes

Thank you for your visit. Hope you have a peaceful day!
