C4C-385 Green Birthday Card

Good morning friends

It's Saturday so that means a new challenge at the Crazy 4 Challenges Blog. Our April 2017 Hostess is Barbara Anders, and our Guest Designer is Lori Tecler

Here is Barbara's challenge this week: This is my birth month and the gem stone for May is the emerald. Use some shade of green on your card—bonus points if it’s emerald green.

I had SOOOO much fun at CHA in January. It was my first one and I really was like a kid in a candy store. Saw several things that I knew I would be purchasing, and as they slowly come into the stores I'm adding to my collection. This Happy Birthday die cut card was one of the sets I had been waiting on and I bought it the minute it was available.

This was my first time using it, and as usual - it was supposed to be just a test cut using what I already had out on my stamping table. Then I started adding a little here and there and before I knew it I had a finished card!

I like that you can do the letters in different colours - and changing the colours really changes the look of the card! I've since seen a couple of really cute samples online that are bright and cheery and sweet and I look forward to changing it up with different colours with my next use.

I tied some Bakers Twine around the 'B' and added a die cut succulent to the "Y".

Here is a peek at the inside ...
