After such a rude awakening last week when I discovered I didn't have any of the actual challenge colours on hand, I checked this week's colours on Monday to make sure all was in good order, and I am happy to report, all was well in my craft room LOL! Phew!!
I loved the turquoise and coral together, but had a bit of a chore working the greens in until I realized I could use them for grass and flower stems. Presto, idea was born and I immediately pulled out one of my favorite Verve sets, Petals and Stems, and went to work. I cut a strip of Garden Green card stock and used scissors to make "grass", popped up the flowers, added a butterfly (can't say I have ever seen a green one, but hey, it works on the card LOL!) and finished things off with some gingham ribbon I found in the Michael's ribbon bin a while back (perfect justification for all my ribbon bin diving adventures LOL!) .
