Its a Green Thing...

Hey there!! Happy Saturday... got several cards today and all of them feature the color green.... which happens to be my favorite color!!   Since it's Saturday that means there is a new challenge over at Less is More and the challenge this week is to use the color green.   After checking out the LIM challenge I decided to see if Susan (LateBlossom) had posted a new One Layer Wednesday challenge and she had!!   Her challenge this week is to use one sentiment stamp on a non-traditional sized card and to make more than one card using that stamp with a different ink.  So... I thought I would combine the two challenges and came up with these two cards:



They both use the SU! color Wild Wasabi, but in different forms.   Obviously on the white one I used the Wild Wasabi ink and the second one uses Wild Wasabi cardstock and Delicate Golden Glitz ink.  The sentiment is from a Hero Arts Christmas set, Joy to All. To give them a bit of interest I added some score lines.  But once I finished making them I decided that I wanted to make a different card for Less is More and came up with this one:



Still used green, but this time I added in  Memento's New Sprout.  The stamps are from PTI (Harvest Berries and Hero Arts).  And since today is my birthday I decided to make this card a birthday card.

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI white; SU! Wild Wasabi; Ink:  Wild Wasabi; Delicate Golden Glitz & New Sprout; Stamps:  PTI, Hero Arts; Gems:  Hero Arts
