Green, White & Gold

6a01bb07e17ff4970d01b8d2504422970c-450wiI don't often use green for a focal point, but the beautiful gown & hydrangeas in the Ellen Hutson Pin-Sights challenge mood board inspired me.  I used scraps of light green textured cardstock & vellum for the EH Bold Blossom dies.  Really love the look of gold Stickles on the blooms. The bouquet is attached to the WP9 die cut which I backed with a gold metallic panel.  
The sentiment from Winnie & Walter Big, Bold, Seasons was stamped in Versafine Vintage Sepia.  I used 2 layers of cardstock instead of foam for just a bit of dimension.  I'm also entering The Playground, SSS Monday, SSS Wednesday & Word Art Wednesday.  I'm working this weekend, but will catch up on my blog reading soon.  Thanks so much for taking time to stop by.
Edited to add: Also entering SSS Work It Wednesday.

  1. Green is not a colour I use either much as a focal point... but you have nailed it here Greta.

  7. It's obvious you should use green more often, because this one is just gorgeous. Love it paired with this gold shade too. And the lattice is beautiful with those flowers adorning it. At first thought this was one of the 'triple layer' dies that are out (and so expensive!). I've ordered the SVG files that will create this look, but not had time to try to learn how to use them. This is just lovely & a breath of spring, Greta. TFS
