Green Day


Sara's Perfect Color Match for this week is "Green Day" using PTI's Spring Moss, Ripe Avocado, and New Leaf. I had my best success to date with embossing! This was the third try for the crocodile, and the best one! I'm a bit paranoid about catching my paper on fire, so I emboss in the kitchen so I can quickly run any flaming paper to the sink! Hopefully, this will never happen!

For my sketch, I used one from Jeanette's Sweet 'n Sassy sketch challenge last week during the SnS release party. With using both color & sketch challenges, this card came together very quick for me! Also, a bit more layers than my normal, but I'm feeling good about this one! I used my Creative Memories Oval cutter, and Label 1 Nestabilities, so there was no measuring!!

Still very cold here, but the birds were singing like a spring day when I arrived home from work. And, it's staying lighter in the evenings!!! About three and a half weeks and my daffodils should be blooming!!!

Happy crafting!
Sharon

This is so cute!! I have never had my papers catch on fire with embossing and I emboss a lot.

The only time I wanted to be near a sink was when I attempted to burn the edges around my card to make it look distressed. I didn't need a sink though since I used an electric stove and was very careful. It turned out neat though.
