Cherry Hello

It's Lori's turn to set the challenge over in the Crafty Secrets member company forum at Splitcoast Stampers. Inspired by the approach of St Patrick's day, she's asked us to use green on our projects.

I used the cherry stamp to make a pattern at the top of my card base with a pale green ink and then sponged a little for a green haze! My green panel is Bazzill Bling so it has a bit of a shimmer in real life. The brown at the bottom was coloured with a Copic marker as I didn't have any cardstock in the colour I wanted.

This is a cute little size - 4" square.

Love the sponging & the use of copics to colour the card - they are useful things these copics :-)
