Color My Heart in Shades of Green

 
 
For this card I combined the Color My Heart Color Dare to use New England Ivy, Topiary, and Sweet Leaf with Unscripted Sketch #195.  I  used sponge daubers to ink the stamp and then to apply additional color to the stamped image which comes from one of my favorite, long retired Close to My Heart sets , "Find Your Style."  Dry embossing with the Cuddlebug folder "Musical Flourishes" adds interest to the background.  Over all, this is a pretty simple card that I hope will bring comfort to a friend.
 
Thank you for stopping by!  Until next time,  Hansi

  4. Great job, Hansi, You are a trooper to take on this challenge--it was a doozy! LOVE your greens with the champagne flourish background, and I agree, the stamps in that particular set, "Find your Style" are so lovely with blended colours. Thanks for joining the crew at Color My Heart this week, and as Becca says, we look forward to your entries!
