Color Challenge: Red/White or Green/White

Leave a comment

Hello all,

This week’s Midweek Throwdown from Operation Write Home is to make a red/white or green/white card that is NOT a Christmas card.   It’s been unseasonably cold here in MN and I must’ve been hoping for a little bit of spring through this card.

I’m sure you can tell by now that my favorite card style is clean and simple!   This card uses a green card base with a sticker – I’m sorry I can’t remember who made the sticker, I made this card a little while ago.  It came on a sheet of 5 or 6 stickers and I was so happy with the results I was getting that I made them all up right away.   The border around the flower is a part of the sticker too, so a bonus is faux matting with no muss/no fuss! Even though I do like the clean and simple look, I’m not overly fond of cards that are missing some texture and dimension and for this card I’ve done a bit of embellishing.  The flower petals, flower stem and the dragonflies have Glossy Accents applied and then some small pearls were added to the lower right to dress it up just a bit.

I hope you like the card!

Gail
