DCM - Going Green

Well before I show you my card for the Daring Cardmakers challenge this morning, can I just say a BIG thank you to everyone who joined in with the dare I set last week.

In fact it was so popular I think it ranked amongst the highed number of participants we’ve had. I loved seeing all your different colour schemes and all the beautiful cards you made and the same goes for this week…........I can’t wait to see what you do with Jozza’s dare!

This week Jozza has decided to go Green and we have to make card in various shade of it.

I can’t say that Green is one of my favourite colours.
I was put off it when I was at school because our school uniform was Bottle Green skirts and cardigans with….get this……a Red and White striped shirt.
They went so well together……not!
Lacking inspiration I took the aest way out and headed for my BG Boxer collection and all the enbelishments that go with it.......but still couldn’t bring myself to go completely Green, so added some Navy to break up the colour.

Boxer just has a great sophisticated yet masculine feel to it doesn't it? Yet another great card Sue!
