CCC #8.... Relax

{for my Shining the Light post, please scroll down or click here}

Hello... Its me, again!  Back with my card for this week's CASology challenge.  Wow... I was so completely blown away by all the fabulous cards that were entered into the green challenge!  It was soo hard picking the winner!  All I can say is ladies... You Rock!!!   This week the cue word is Relax.  All the challenge details can be found here.



 

Yes... I used green on my card this week!  I really wanted to use another color, but when I think about things that remind me of the word "relax" the color green is almost always associated with those thoughts!   Green is such a calm and relaxing color to me and I just had to use it!  I went with a white on white design with a pop of green from the ink, the ribbon and pearls.  The layout is based on the current Retro Sketch.  I used a Spellbinders Labels 18 die (the largest one) to cut the white cardstock and then stamped it with a fern image and sentiment from the Flourishes Ferns & Fiddles set.  One edge was trimmed to be flush with the card edge.  Ribbon and pearls finished things off.

Thanks for stopping by....make sure you check out the cards from the rest of the design team:
Melissa, Tracey, Jen, Ardyth and this week's guest designer, Karen! Can't wait to see what you come up with using this week's cue word!

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI white; Stamps:  Flourishes; Ink:  Stampin Up!; Die:  Spellbinders; Pearls:  Hero Arts; Ribbon:  Stampin Up!

Hello Rosie
The name for this hue of Green is Verdant Moss, and it is an excellent attention getter and just as an accent it captures the eye, you know nothing clashes with Green, in every area of design and in a multitude of colour combinations, Green can be used much the same as White.
And nothing will rivet the eye more than a Yellow-Green. Yes, Green is relaxing, it is also calming and refreshing, next time your motivation goes walk-about pick up this colour and magic happens!
Your card is elegant, crisp and clean Rosie, I am sure we are all more relaxed after viewing it.
Smiles:)
