3CTC3 Green is my Favorite color?

Green is not a color I will reach for at all unless it is to compliment something like flowers, or grass in a picture. I am a blue, purple, brown kind of person. I think the only time I use green as my main color is for St. Patrick's Day cards. I don't usually make many of these either because I have a hard time thinking in green! When I saw Kerry's Thursday challenge , green card with 3 embellishments,I laughed because I had just posted the ONLY GREEN card I thought I would be doing this year! Ha, guess not!
To change my creative thoughts I pulled out something I haven't used in years, my card templates. These are plastic templates, Deluxe Cutes makes them, that you place over the card and then proceed to cut and fill in the shapes with pieces that you have cut to fit. Using these make everything just the right size and evenly spaced. You can modify them like I did by taking out a small square and putting in the scalloped circle. It is a little time consuming but looks nice when it is done. After all the shapes are in place I just decorate most of them with a stamped image, phrase or embellishment and the card is done!
Stamps: Ann-ticipations, DRS and dollar stamps
CS: SU Green Galore, Garden Green, Gable Green, CTMH, DP, ass't scraps.
Ink: Garden Green, Green Galore, Versafine black, and Copics
Accessories: Template by Deluxe Cuts, Nesties, Liquid Applique, Stickles, ribbon, buttons, and rhinestones
I hope you liked this card. If you like the color green or just want to try some really fun challenges pop over to Kerry's blog and play along!
Thanks for looking and I hope you check back soon!
