Day 212 - The three G's

This morning I took some time to do a couple more of the 365 Card Blog Challenges. On Tuesday, they posted the challenge to use the three G's - Girl, Green and Glisten. Well, the girl and the glisten were easy for me - but GREEN? I just REALLY don't do green - other than for accent, so this was a real stretch for me and took me out of my comfort box. BUT, I am happy to show you my finished card. It seemed that when I thought I was done, I had to add one more thing, and after I got home from work, I thought about adding another - but decided it was good and I should just leave it be! I started with Certainly Celery - which I really do like - and added a piece of OLD, I am talking REALLY old designer paper. I might have bought that paper more than 7 years ago!! Seriously! Anyway, I thought it went fairly nicely with this SWEET Tilda who is blowing fairy dust - and yeah she got some smudged on her face!! lol I decided to try my hand at the pleated ribbon that is all the rage right now - it went fairly well and then I added a bit of stickles to each of the loops. I also got out some more of that smooch that I used yesterday and added some highlights to Tilda's hair. I also added some stickles to the flower arrangement (getting better at that, don't ya think?) And then sprayed everything with a bit of gold lame smooch. All in all I think my Green card turned out fairly nice - however, that does NOT mean it will be my go to color - just saying!!

Thanks for stopping by - I do have another card I will be posting shortly and then I just might get some time to make a couple more of the cards for the challenges - trying to get caught up before tomorrow.

I on the contrary love Green - I like that ribbon & love how you've sat her on the gate. Keep thinking of you as I'm playing with my Faber Castell Polychromos & the Derwent Coloursoft - they're both similar to Prismas but I've not seen Prismas & bought the two tins I have before I'd even thought of colouring images.
