Another Birthday Card - in green.

I love green, as some may know! It is such the colour of nature and it comes in so many hues. It is wonderful. And I like to think of myself as a down to earth type of person so green suites me, but I am sure others may not think so. lol but that's their opinion and who am I to argue with them.

But anyway.....

Yesterday was my sisters birthday, will not divulge a number, but will go as far as to say, she is an older sister. :)


It is a simple but effective card.
It is a tent shaped card base, using Pink Petticoat backing paper and the plain  paper is also from PP. This plain PP paper is embossed using a Provo Craft Roses folder. The white die cut shape is cut using an Xcut die then chalked lightly on top of this is a Rose image water coloured and glittered.   The sentiment is a papermania sentiment. On the backing paper I used Sukara glaze pen to highlight some of the circles just for effect and I wanted to do it!

Recipe:
Designer Paper: Pink Petticoat - Doodleicious Rainbow papers 3
Embossing Folder: ProvoCraft Roses folder.
Image: Stash
Sentiment: Papermania sentiment.
Colour medium: Ink - StazOn black - sentiment, papermania  pigment inks - Rose, Sukara Glaze clear pen,
Glitter: DoCraft -Glamour Dust

Other News in my Little World

This is what is happening in the fields across the road -  my BIL's land.

He is getting the grass cut for silage (food for cattle over wintering in the sheds), they look like mini black puddings!
 The grass is cut (like in right of the photo) then is "sucked" up and wrapped in black plastic via a machine on the back of a tractor.
It is fascinating watching it.
Yeah! I need to get a life. lol

Hope you like,

Green is definitely the colour of the moment...haaa! It's one of my fave colours, and I wear it often, even though my mam tells me it's unlucky....paaahhh!
I really like that water-coloured rose, and the tiny bit of sparkle is lovely....well done, you!
I'm sitting at my front room window, and can see almost exactly the same view as you are showing....black puddings galore....and it smells wonderful!
