I stamped instead of using the fabulous Forever Fern designer paper (I had given all my away to my team as this was their last month's challenge!!). So I looked out my window (I'm in Maine) and saw leaves and water is all colors green. So I create the strip of water which is flat on the card, 1" x 5 1/4". I added the strips of gold (these are the edges of the paper, I love scraps!) to the edges of the 2 white pieces (left is 1 1/4 x 5 1/4, the right is 2 1/4)
I dry embossed the right side of the white paper with the ferns. The smile greeting is from the set "Lovely You".
My color choice came from the designer paper: Pretty Peacock, Sea Foam, Just Jade, Pear Pizzazz.
I used a few more of the scraps (edges of the paper) to decorate my envelope.
What a fun challenge. Tomorrow I'll post a completely different look using the white side of this fun paper.
Stay tuned for some posts from my team mates, they have until Monday to get their entries in to win some bling!!
Happy creating, MaryKate
