Black and white with a splash of LIME

It's time for another COLOR SPLASH challenge at the Play Date Cafe!  This time we each can choose our own color for the splash! 

Down here in Florida, I am loving all the green I wouldn't have back home at this time of year, and I also adore that we can get LIMES easily and inexpensively now, too.  Sure do wish I could have my own lime tree!  So with that thought, I chose LIME as my splash and here is my entry:


supplies: green, white and black cardstock, Imaginisce "Lucy Bird" dp, versafine onyx black ink, Hero Arts stamps S5507 Envelope Pattern, CG172 Garden Bouquet, CG130 Butterflies, CL497 Find Joy, chartreuse dotted ribbon, EK Success scallop punch
