Less is More 44...GREEN

The challenge for Less is More this week is to use the color green.  My daughter had a party with friends here last night, so Noah and I took to my craft room and watched Polar Express and Home Alone 2...and I made cards!!  What fun!!  Here's what I came up with...fast and easy(the cards AND post)!
 The first one uses a single stamp from Inkadinkado.  I stamped in Old Olive, colored letters of sentiment in Old Olive and flourish in Certainly Celery.  I dotted with 5 celery colored rhinestones and popped up on Old Olive card
 Stamped this flourish...what can I say, it was a flourish kinda night.... from Papertrey Ink's Silent Night in Always Artichoke, the sentiment (from the same set) also in Artichoke and dotted with silver pearls
This third one has blue in it...couldn't escape the sky.  The trees are two stamps from Heartfelt Creations.  Stamped both stamps in Artichoke(loving that green!!)...sponged with bashful blue, masking a bit for the clouds and under the trees...added Hero Arts sentiment and dotted with white gel pen for snow in sky and on trees...I PROMISE there's snow...you need to click on the picture to look closer!  Initially was  a bit stumped by the green, but once I started thinking about things other than trees, it became fun!!
Must run...have to brush up on chapter 3 of Algebra before my tutee gets here (yes, I looked it up, one who is tutored is a tutee...I won't tell him that!!)....have a great day!!!
Thanks for visiting me today!! Hugs!! Lisa
