Less is More - 3 Shades of Green

Here is my card for this week's Less is More, where the theme is three shades of green. I used Adirondack inks in Citrus, Lettuce and Meadow, with the freebie from last months Craft stamper (the Hares designed by Indigo Blu) and some Inkylicious Grass stamps. I added a few blobs of diamond stickles to the scene. My ability to do anything straight today seems a little impaired, as you can see by the photo, and my first stamping of the sentiment was not straight, so I stamped it again, cut it out and placed it over the wonky one - good job it isn't a one layer week, Chrissie and Mandi! The Stamp is from Hobby Art and I edged the sentiment panel with a bit more stickles. I'm also entering this into the Samuel Taylors Challenge where the theme is green. This months fabulous prize is a pot of Indigo Blu "Yorkshire Dales" mega flakes, a tub of Flitter Glu and a sponge which allows you to apply your flakes effectively.
I am going to share a couple more photos from Scotland, just to show how green the fields looked in the sunshine.
Thanks for looking!
