Green Again

Ok so before I begin on the card I think I need to explain the amount of green cards recently, I don't mean recycled either lol.

I don't know about anyone else but I seem to go through stages with papers and this kit is no exception. It had sat on my computer for months without so much as a passing glance when I needed to make a golfing card and the argyle paper was so perfect and since then I have used it multiple times. It doesn't help I suppose that the people I am making for at the moment all love green but I am hoping for some pinks, purples, greys well just about any combo to make an appearance soon.

Anywhoo onto the card, used the very versatile paper kit from Summer Driggs called Fresh Start and this time I used the snippets rather than print new sheets, in fact the black and green card came from the snippet box so apart from the image oh wait a minute I used a part sheet of white to stamp onto, see I am now so used to using snippets I forget that I am doing it lol.

Paper: "Fresh Start" Summer Driggs
Cardstock: Papermill (Black) & Walmart (Green)
Embellies: Card candy (craftwork cards) Brad (Walmart)

I love this Amanda! Have that stampss, not inked up yet and had it for ages (slap wrist here!) - you've coloured it brilliantly, it's one of my faves and the colours on your card all go together so well. As you used snippets, are you going to enter this into this weeks Jules Crafty Snippets Challenge then? Di xx
