Blue & green should never be seen…..

unless there’s beauty in between.  Well I think this Mimosa image is very beautiful and I’m having so much fun as a guest designer for these gorgeous Bildmalarna stamps.  I’ve tried mixing my distress ink colours for this card and I’m pretty pleased with the result.  The fantastic layout is from this weeks Sketch Saturday challenge and this card also qualifies for the Secret Crafter challenge (recipe: 3 buttons, 2 papers, 1 ribbon) and the Creative Card Crew challenge (one for the girls).
