Where Has The Teal Green Gone...

Thanks for stopping by today. 
I've been extremely busy and away for the Easter Holiday visiting my children and dear little grandson so I'm a tad late this week posting another card for you.  
Once again, I was asked by a dear friend to please make a card for her daughter-in-laws birthday that was soon to be in April.  I explained I had recently purchased this new die cut and asked her If she would like it made with this new die.  (The die cut is so feminine and what girl doesn't like frilly and lattice).  She agreed.

So my nibble finger got quickly to work and I came up with this card for her.
My girlfriend was pleasantly surprised with how it turned out and couldn't wait to give it to her.
One thing you will notice as the birthday verse looks more green or teal green. She did ask me to use teal green as her daughter-in-law loves teal green.
In actuality the blue background color is really more teal green than it appears.  It's unfortunate that my camera and lighting does not show the true background color.  It appears quite blue in each picture.  The flowers and ink really matched the paper in real life.

I would love to take some classes in picture taking to learn more of how I can make my colors more true to life in my pictures.  However, I don't think that will ever happen, so you will just have to bear with me.  I've tried taking my pictures outdoors to try and pick up the true colors but gave up on that now because the sunlight is so bright in the day I can barely see my cameras screen.
Wishing you all a crafty week!
Please stop by again real soon....


  1. this card is so lovely. I also think your photography is much better than mine. I gave up on trying to get the true colors. I would need a class too to be able to do that. I tried taking my pics outdoors and it rarely works for me. I always seem to pick up a shadow. I usually take my pics indoors with my ott lights...yes I have two of them...put one on each side of my card. They still don't show up the true colors on the pictures though. (I bought my lights half price or I wouldn't have

  2. Gorgeous!! I love the tag on top of that die, works perfectly!!
