Going Green

Hi dear friends and fellow bloggers.  Hope everybody is fit and well.  Just a very quick card today - Busy! Busy!

First of all, just thought I would say that Darren chose the green card with the quote about Kilimanjaro - "Every mountain is within reach if you just keep climbing". He is very pleased with it fortunately. So pleased that he has asked me to make another retirement card for one of the Consultant Surgeons who has mentored him and been very helpful to him over the last 10 years. That is not until end of August so I have some time to think about it. More male cards!!

My Card

My card today is 5 x 7". - and female! Lol!  I used the Born To Shop pad "Go Green" from Papermania. I took one of the image sheets and separated the sentiment and image.  Then I just cut up some of the other pages and arranged them on the card.  The little 3D butterfly is a Fly Stickers from Hobbycrafts and picks up the colour of the lady's dress.   A few Papermania Shimmer Dots finished it.  If you are in a hurry these pads are great because in a very short time you can have a card ready. 

Hope you all have a great day.

Love and hugs from Christine xx
