ABC Challenge - G is for...

We've got a colour challenge for you this fortnight at the ABC Challenge:

'G is for Green'

There's a fab prize on offer for the lucky winner, from our sponsor Ribbon Oasis, of a collection of gorgeous green ribbons:


For my card, I've used a mixture of soft pastel greens, with papers from the '29th Street Market' collection by My Mind's Eye. I used both sides of the papers, embossing the plain side of one with my Cuttlebug 'Victoria' folder, then sanding it to reveal the white core. The image is 'Teddy Bear' by Sugar Nellie, the flowers are from Poppicrafts, and the brads are by Dovecraft. I distressed the all of the edges, then added some faux-stitching around the edges of the papers.


The rest of the design team have created some really inspirational projects this week...so make sure you take a look at the ABC Challenge blog.
