SPRING GREENS

Hi all, once again we have sunshine although a little chilly but who's moaning....I'm not, lol.  I was thrilled to find out that I won the challenge at Just For Fun the badge is flashing in my sidebar, I also won a beautiful framed photo from the selection shown on Paul Bailey's Blog you can find some awesome pictures HERE
Today I have a card to show you featuring an Aurora Wings image, although I have coloured her green she is not a 'Spring Cabbage' but the flowers are actually roses I have adapted the colour theme to enter into some challenges also on the new Aurora Wings Facebook challenge.
I have used a black 7" x 7" card base the papers are from my stash that I had from Elusive Images, now called Chocolate Baroque, they are quite a few years old but the swirl of the leaves matched perfectly the ones on the image.  I used some new die cuts, Ivy Corners, Butterflies, Dragonflies and Sue Wilson's Lattice border and bow, I die cut everything twice both in black and green card stock, I place the black behind the green to give a shadow effect, I also added some pale green pearls here and there.
The image I coloured with Graph It Markers used my corner punch and then mounted her onto black card stock.
I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:
I have taken a few photos in different light positions, hope you like what you see.


Many thanks for visiting I do hope that you will come back again soon until then have a lovely week.

Its as if you read my mind! You seem to know a great deal about this, just like you wrote the novel in it or something.Cccam Server I think that one could do by incorporating pics they are driving the message home somewhat, but instead of the, this is great blog. A fantastic read. Ill definitely be back.
