Pretty in Green...

Click to Enlarge
 Hi Everybody,

This is a little bit different for me as I am not a great lover of greens ... but now that it is finished I am quite pleased with it.

The backing papers are some that I have designed myself and I have matted and layered them onto some white card.

The Romantic Rectangles base has been layered with Fluer Di Lis Rectangles.

The  Floral Ovals is layered with a Scalloped Oval  and all have been separated with foam pads.

Labels 20  is on the top with the sentiment that I have heat embossed in silver and  I have added in the matching "Bling" from Want2Scrap   as for me this is finishing touch.

And my flowers are as always from Wild Orchid Crafts  I have used a mixture of different sized Roses, Cherry Blossoms and the leaves are from a punch that I bought at a craft fair.

The Braided Ribbon  is in a video tutorial and I have used green and white satin ribbon.  The whole thing looks much nicer in real life....

Hugs xx


  1. That's a lovely card Christina. The colouring is great.

  2. Oh wow! This is so pretty. I really like the pastel shade of green. What do you do with all your cards? Do you sell them or just give them away?

  3. Another fabulous card Christina. Your background papers are perfect and the wonderful dual coloured braid just sets the whole thing off beautifully.

  4. Still looks amazing Christina, I love this ribbon tutorial, used it a couple of times. xxx

  5. Christina you will never know how happy I am you posted about greens, it is the least color I use and my challenge for the DT this week is "Greens"...
