Today's card is green a colour that i do not use very often. I felt that I had to team it up with a little contrasting colour, so used some lemon flowers. I was totally unsure when I was putting it together, but I am pleased with the end result.

I have used another of my own made sentiments.

First Kiss

Morning all

Jut a quick post today before I dash off to work. This is one I made a couple of weeks ago as a trial for something different. The pictures were difficult to take to show how the card opens, but it folds down the front so that it can close with the image inside or it opens half way with the image on the front.

I just love this stamp, its one of my favourtites, but I have so many favourites it is difficult to get round them all more than once.

I would like to enter this into the following challenge:

CES Challenge 75 - Flower Frenzy 

Items used
Sarah Kay image (First Kiss)
Backing Papers - Summer Driggs
Flowers and Dollie - Wild Orchid 
Sentiment - LOTV
Ribbon - Costco
