Green and Gold

The codeword on Addicted to CAS was Take Flight. The challenge on SCS TLC436  Twisted Traditions 2 was to use traditional holiday colours to make a non-holiday card. I choose the green and gold - but not a St Patrick's Day Card! Also another challenge - Ways to Use It - WT433 - was to use Colour Blocking. I combined the two to make this card.

It was very difficult for some reason to photograph these greens - they came out much bluer than in life.
I used a glass stamp block and Rangers Distress Inks spritzed with water to make my colour blocking.
