DCM 'Lucky Green'

It's Samm's turn to dare us this week at Daring Cardmakers and Samm has chosen

'Lucky Green'

Yes, St Patricks day is on its way, so I challenge you to make a card using the main colour as green and feature 'luck' somewhere on your card. It's one of those colours we hardly ever get to use so I hope it gets you all digging around in your crafty stash and creating frantically!

Here is my card...

I don't often use green but this card just came together so easily. I found this MME Alphabet Soup paper which was perfect for this card. I layered it on to some kraft cardstock and added a cream gardenia blossom as a central focus. I wanted to use a shamrock really but couldn't find anything that really worked.

The silky crush ribbon was ruffled to add texture and after searching through my whole stash (which is quite alot!), and failing to find a good luck stamp / rub on etc., I found this little St Pat's label, which I secured using apple green bakers twine.

Supplies used:
Cardstock - Kraft, MME Alphabet Soup
Ribbon - Parrot Green Silky Crush and Apple Green Bakers Twine from The Ribbon Reel
Flower - Cream Gardenia Blossom from The Ribbon Reel
Label - Making Memories Calender Events tags
