WOJ - Green and Karen's Candy


I love green, had to hold myself adding pink with it as that is my favourite colour combination - but will do that for secret crafter if I have time later this week?


I am entering this card into Karen's blog candy too - please see side bar for the permiment link.

I have doubts over this card too - I am really struggling of late to produce anything that I am truely happy with and my favourite card which I did for mothers day for Sugar Bowl nobody seems to like so I am a little lost at the moment.
The card above is for a friends birthday and there are 7 crystal shimmer dots in the corner but they have not come out at all well on the photo. The papers have been faux stitched and layered. They are all basic grey. I have cut and oval out to mount the image on and embossed it. I hope you like it.
