Shades of green ....

.... over the last week, I've been having fun browsing the Internet - checking out various challenges.  I've seen Dynamic Duos a few times, but this is the first time I've played along - and I'm only just in time for this week.  This week Dynamic Duos - DD#21 have a monochromatic theme and it's my favourite colour - GREEN!!! How could I not join in?

I recently got some new stamps from Papertrey Ink - ones that I've been wanting for a while - the beautiful Gracious Vases.  I've made a sympathy card - not for any particular reason, but to have "just in case".

Stamps:  Papertrey Ink - Gracious Vases
Inks:  Stampin' Up! - Always Artichoke, Certainly Celery, Crumb Cake
Accessories;  SU Card - Always Artichoke, Certainly Celery, Crumb Cake; Craft Concept EF - Woodgrain; Promarkers; Card from stash

I kept it really simple - just a few mats, the stamped vases and sentiment, and a woodgrain panel to ground the vases.  I coloured the orchids with Promarkers.  I also decorated the inside of the card - again very simple a couple of mats and the vases in the corner.

I'm starting to work on a scrapbook of our summer trip in California.  I've been checking through the photos that Jonathan and I took - hundreds of them!!  It's going to take a while, but I'm having such fun.  That's all for now.  Back again soon.
