Green Tea

Hello again, everyone!  How's your week going?  We are once again up to our eyeballs in rain.  I'm heartily tired of it.

Yesterday I shared a card using a soon-to-retire stamp set, and today I'm doing the same.  Please join me in wishing A Nice Cuppa and Summer Silhouettes a fond farewell.

I was going for green tea leaves kinda on the left panel; I think they turned out just a little too subtle but if I hadn't stamped off then it would have been way too harsh for what I wanted.  No good answer there so I'm just moving forward.  My color combo is unintentionally close to yesterday's too, except for adding Flirty Flamingo instead of Tip Top Taupe.  Honestly I wanted to do Mint Macaron and Flirty Flamingo together, so I looked for a third color that would compliment them and decided on Dapper Denim, only realizing when I was finished that yesterday's card and today's look kinda similar.  Oh well.

I used this week's Mojo Monday sketch:

And that is all she wrote today.  Cheers, y'all!

Looks like your stripey ribbon is part organza and part satin. VERY nice. I do like the colors - kind of a mossy green.

Hope you are having a good time and the rain has stopped. I think we're going to have rain encroaching on our long weekend -- shoot! Enjoy!
