LIM week 44 colour

Hi everyone, it's week 44 now
over at 'Less is More' and it's
a colour theme this week so....
I am not a great lover of green
but I may have changed my mind
after doing a green card . Quite 
liking green now! So many
gorgeous cards now being made
by the  devilishly talented Diva's
and LIMettes. I really struggle to
come up with something good 
every week now. The standards 
are getting so high!!!! but it keeps
the old grey matter going so here
goes. I didn't have a script stamp I
wanted,so I made my own ( computer
generated). I used some french words 
too, french SIL would be proud 
lol. I used distress ink to make it green
( TH peeled paint). Then I used my 
Spellbinders die ( fancy tags 2) to
cut a label/tag, computerized sentiment
again. I distress inked that  and added
glamour dust to  some parts .I finished it off
by threading ribbon ( coloured with distress
ink to  match) through the label/tag.
Oh  & some pearls coloured to match 
with a Copic ( olive).Job done, quite
pleased this time, hope you approve too :O)
Have a lovely weekend everyone .

Isn't it a great feeling when you can make such a gorgeous card out of a color you don't care for! I really like the background with the fancy tag over the top. Very CAS and very beautiful.


PS - It was the food Viv; I was starving and couldn't focus after I saw those brownies. LOL
Apologies for getting it wrong, regardless of my sugar levels. :D
