'Blue & Green...

...should not be seen without a colour in between'...what nonsense - I love blue and green together! There are plenty of gorgeous cards to prove the saying wrong over on the Daring Cardmakers blog too, which has this colour combo as their dare this week. I followed the sketch from this fortnight's Carol's Sketch Fun Challenge (this is my first time entering one of her challenges); and managed to use the Whiff of Joy Challenge recipe of '3 papers, 3 flowers & 1 ribbon' too.
I used 'Kneeling Willow', an image sent to me in a swap by my lovely ABC DT mate Vicky, colouring her to match these yummy BasicGrey papers (from the 'Two Scoops' pad). I embossed the 'plain' one using the Cuttlebug 'D'Vine Swirls' folder, and tied a piece of ribbon (from Poppicrafts) around it. The roses are from Hobbycraft, the sentiment is from the Clare Curd Signature Range set by Papermania, and I couldn't resist adding some card candy to fill the empty space in the top right-hand corner.
