Going Green

Gee whiz, it's nearly a week since I blogged. I'm so behind in my 'festive preparations' that I've had to put crafting on the back burner.   In saying that though, I'm now fed up with shopping and trying to tidy the house so I thought I'd have a little 'me' time and make a quick card for the Less is More Challenge, which this week is ...
GREEN

Not really my favourite colour  and I really should have made a Christmas card (cause other than two I've made for previous LIM challenges, I haven't made any yet! scream!) but hey, ho, if I end up buying some it's not the end of the world!

























(Had to take the photo under the kitchen lights so not really showing true colours)

Stamp is La Blanche, inked in Versafine Olympia Green and lightly coloured with Crushed Olive DI and Stampin Up Old Olive
A bit of Sakura Clear Star for a bit of sparkle  
Sentiment is Hero Arts, punches are Stampin' Up

Thanks for taking the time to visit and I hope you're all a bit more organised than I am!

Suze xx

That stamp is fabulous!
Love the splashes of green

I buy some cards to send to far remote family/friends that don't know what I do! As you say, no great shakes
Thank you

Suze - this is fabulous - love the floral image and the gorgeous shades of green. The sparkle seems to bring the flowers to life - absolutely gorgeous!

Lovely card Suze. I like La Blanche too. I'm afraid I'm not organised either this year, I haven't made one christmas card yet!!

Looks great Suze, a lovely thank you card. I've posted half of my cards but still have the other half to do when I can face it. Lol! x
