This morning everyone else is back to work and it's school holidays for me so it was with great pleasure that I checked my Feedly for new posts and felt the stir of excitement about some of the challenges.
First up was the unusual colour challenge at CAS Colours and Sketches.
Although initially not overly excited by this combination, things changed when I saw the challenge at The Paper Players.
The two things came together in a Big Bang kind of moment to this:
I dithered around about whether to centre the circles but now I've seen it finished, I'm pleased I went with the off-set circles instead.
"Happy" I cut twice, once in Garden Green and once in Certainly Celery and it gives just the faintest dark outline that, in real life, gives a bit of pop to the word.
And I'm pleased to say that lots of green and lots of dies were used in the making of this card!
Update: So pleased that this card was chosen as A Cut Above at Paper Players and was also a Weekly Winner at CAS Colours and Sketches.
