Minty Fresh

At Moxie Fab World, we are to showcase the color of green we know as mint.  I loved Cath's first example of a dress in mint with chocolate dots and I used that as my inspiration  (mint chocolate chip ice cream not being far from my mind either):


supplies: cream and brown cardstock, dps from American Crafts dear lizzy Neapolitan, Hero Arts K5376 Hydrangea, 330053 Heydey Sentiments, Pallette Burnt Umber ink, Hero Arts craft twine, Nesties scalloped rectangles, Scrapbook Adhesives 3D foam squares

This is such a yummy creation Lin! If it wasn't so early I'd be off to get some mint chocolate ice cream right now:)

Lin this is just so lovely! I like the little white centers and how they pop off the page and also continue the "dot" theme!

That stamp reminds me of one of the older stamps that I've seen around for years. Still, you've used the image in such a neat way it seems fresh and new (maybe even minty fresh!). I love green and this card is beautiful. Nice job!

Maureen Morton said...

Seriously? My goodness, what a great color combo for this lovely stamp (I need to dust it off and pull it out). I am excited about this challenge - such a great card! The white centers on the flower really gives it great dimension.

Delicious! How a hydrangea can remind me of my favourite chocolate bar I don't know! But it does, and its so beautiful too.
