Tropical Lime...


Hiya,
Happy Friday everyone!!!

My card today is a nice bright Spring card - it's Spring here after all and in Sydney the weather has been gorgeous.

The sketch I used is for Carol's sketch fun challenge this is Carol's sketch I like the double ribbon element but as I only had the narrow lime ribbon I punched some lime card to add the extra width for the left hand side of my card.
I've also entered this card in Melanie's farewell challenge on PCP. The challenge there was to make a Best Wishes or Good Luck Card.
Hope you like this one.

Oh and guess what I got the answer to my linking question from yesterday's post. Yeah I know how to do it and will put it to the test to link this card. Thank you Kath in Scotland, Lorraine in UK and Theresa from STV oh and Susanna from PCP!!!!!! what am I like? I had everyone in on this. Sorry all but I hate to be stumped. Anyway enough twittering on it's after midnight I might post this then go to bed!!!
Thanks for stopping by.
Till next time........

This is simply beautiful! The colors and the papers you used are perfect together. You mimicked the sketch perfectly (which is what I always try to do). Really pretty! Great stuff! Best, Curt
