Flourish Thinlits, Avant Garden and GREEN

Hello everyone! I sure hope your day is going well!! Things are going pretty good here...so much to do...so little time. I have to remind myself to take one thing at a time!  

Tonight at 5pm PST I am participating in another Facebook Hop. Of course I waited til the last minute to create my card! Our theme is GREEN and I just wasn't feeling it! Don't get me wrong...I love Saint Patrick's day...I love Corn Beef and Cabbage...I've even been known to drink a green beer (although I don't like beer)...BUT green just wasn't speaking to me!  

I woke up this morning, ran a few errands and then got out to my workshop. I just HAD to come up with something!


So...HERE IT IS!! I really like how it turned out...LOVING the clean and simple look these days!

My card base is 4 1/4" X 11".  My first layer is Old Olive and measures 4 1/8" X 5 3/8". The next layer is Whisper White and measures 4" X 5 1/4". I used the largest oval from the Stitched Shapes framelits to cut an oval out of the Whisper White cardstock.  Notice that it isn't centered. I placed it more toward the top so I would have room for a sentiment at the bottom. Speaking of sentiments, mine is from the Avant Garden FREE Sale-A-Bration stamp set.  I attached the oval cut out with Dimensionals to give the card depth. I used the Flourish Thinlits to cut the BEAUTIFUL floral flourish out in Whisper White card stock. I attached the flourish with Multipurpose glue.  I added several Basic Rhinestones to give it just a bit of ELEGANCE.  It's BEAUTIFUL! I hope you feel INSPIRED to create...doesn't have to be green...but it sure is a TOUGH challenge!

Don't forget to join the Facebook Hop tonight at 5pm PST!!!

Thanks BUNCHES for stopping by today! I LOVE sharing what I do with you!  
Have a TERRIFIC day...stay SAFE!!
