Blue and green card

It's week 79 over at 'Less is More' and this time
it's a colour and...........
Blue & Green
I think I must be psychic as last week's card was
blue and green. I seem to enter a suitable card a week
 in advance often these days !  Hmmm what do I predict next
 week then?? .....well one layer of course so that's easy lol.
Anyway here is my card, hope you like it. Have a lovely weekend
 everyone,whatever you have planned. We are just chilling this
 time before our big get  together next week.As it's my birthday
on Wed I hope for good weather too :) I am excited as I am
getting a Kindle at long last , with a load of books already loaded too.
ps. Btw. thanks Mandi  for the tip, I love that Wow embossing powder !

  6. This is fabulous Viv and I love the artistic way you stage your cards for photography!
    It really is rather strange how so many LIMettes seem to pre-empt the following week's challenge... spooky or what!
    Love that butterfly!
    Thanks so much

  8. Another fabulous card Viv, love the way you've used a die to shape the colour backdrop. Hope you have a wonderful day on Wednesday, I'm sure the sun will shine on you:) You'll love the Kindle, fits perfectly in a handbag, no more running out of books! The best bit is being able to download a sample of a book before you buy.
