Shades of Green



The inspiration for this card came from three different challenges. The layout is based on the sketch challenge at Jingle Belles. I've also used shades of green for the color palette, which is the current color challenge over at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown. Lastly,  I'm playing along with the WASHI tape technique challenge over at Just Us Girls. I don't often have a chance to combine so many challenges but these three worked very well together.

Supplies: Cardbase: Recollections, Cardstock: Fox River Paper Co., Decorative Tape: MME, Darice, Tree Punch: All Night Media, Tag Punch & Stamp: Stampin' Up, Ink: Studio G, Embossing Folder: Darice, Adhesive: Scotch ATG
