The Card Concept #50


Today starts a new challenge over at The Card Concept, based on the inspiration photo below.
I do not have any shamrock stamp sets or dies of any kind because I don't seem to create cards using them at all so I drew my inspiration from the color.
Green is not a color I use often in my card except for grass so it was fun to try something new for me.

For my card I started with a whote card base that I ran through my cuttle bug with a polka dot embossing folder for some texture. I then blended some green ink over the background concentration closer to the bottom of my card. I created my little oval frame by cutting out white card stock with a die from Avery Elle. My happy banner is from the Happy Mail stamp set from W plus 9 that I stamped and fussy cut out to string from the top of my oval frame. My birthday sentiment I cut out from white card stock as well from a die from SSS. 
I finished my card off as usual with some sequins from PPP.
That;s it for my card today I hope you enjoyed the green! It's a bit different for me :p
Hope you'll join along with us over at The Card Concept!
Can't wait to see what you create!
Thanks for stopping by!
Hope you have a lovely day!
