Merry Monday #74 challenge

So this is my second week joining in on the Merry Monday challenge with the folks at Always Playing with Paper. If you haven't been to their blog yet, you really must go and see all the incredible talent they've got going on over there! In the meantime, while your here, take a look at the card I created for this challenge using only GREEN, WHITE and wood.

I knew I wanted my card to have a crisp, clean look with white as my focal color. I used the Spellbinders "Poinsettia" dies and embossed the background with a wood design by cuttlebug. I added just a hint of sparkle in the center of each poinsettia using stickles.

The sentiment is from PaperTrey Ink. I double stamped the sentiment first in a matching green and then again with black, stamped off once. I wanted it to have a shadowy look to it. Thanks for looking. Blessings to you~ Birgit
