Lime, Espresso, and White

I have been a big fan of all things lime, so when I saw the newest Card Concept challenge, to use lime, espresso, and white, I just had to have a play! Love the lime mixed with this deep chocolate brown!


Here's my take, in the Clean and Layered Style:

A New Day

I started with a sketch I had saved in Pinterest.  The wide green strip is an unknown washi tape and the green branch die is now discontinued.  The button also comes from my stash.  It doesn't show very well in this picture, but the brown circle is also dry embossed with a woodgrain folder, listed below.

A New Day, detail

And I'm also trying out the InLinkz tool, thanks to Vicky at Clips-n-Cuts.  She is having a fantastic giveaway there, and I encourage you to go check it out!

  10. The green really pops against the dark brown - I don't think I would have come up with this colour combo but it works so well! Love your CAS design too!
