I thought I'd try to get a couple more cards done today because I have to pack up the scrapbox tomorrow and head north to the land of the ice and snow (wasn't that a song back in the 80's?). OMG, I can't believe I'm going to have to wear long pants and socks, I am so not into this weather conversion. Oddly, no one up there feels sorry for me at all. LOL. They're going to like me even less when I show up with a tan.
This is for My Favorite Things Wednesday Stamp Club sketch challenge, and a couple green challenges (you all want to be Irish this month, don't you, OK, we love the attention) from Really Reasonable Ribbon and Paper Variety.
Sometimes, there's lots of stuff that you can't see in the photo. In this photo almost everything is showing except that the white cs was sponged with Close To My Heart "Colonial White". It's very subtle but it does add a soft hint of distressing. Once in a while I go for subtle (really, I do, stop laughing, I really do). The button on the side of the oval is difficult to see too, it's a cute little flower from Stampin' Up. Lastly, it's not easy to see the stamp on the inside.
Here's the deets:
