2 Green Cards (A friendship and A Birthday Card)

*****My second post for today, its only because the challenge that I want to join is only has less than 3 Hours ahead also for another card for ATSM challenge KLICK HERE please :)*****

I see so many challenges GREEN outside there but Green is not my fav. color :(( I even dont have dress or sweater with green colors :( Ok but crying is not helping, right :) I try my best to used Green color at my drawer to make this card:

Here is the step by step I did for my card:

1. I masked my sentiment then I  masked again the edge of the card and put the stencil at the top of them all.

2. I choose green ink what I have (nearly all :)) and then sponged from the bottom to the top of white area :)

3. looked at the photo here the card look too much white? hmm 

I decided to colored the left and right area with one of the green color I have.

This is my one layer sentiment card :)

Challenges for my card are:

Colour Q Challenge 333

Less is More #267: One Layer Sentiment

Sweet Stamps: March Anything Goes

My second card is a birthday card for my sweet Friend Kim...hope she has no time and not look at my Post :) I sent already to USA to her home hope she will like it :)


I gave some confetti on the cup cake and choose lime green color, cause this is her fav color :)

  1. You've done a fantastic job with both cards! I headed over here from Less is More and particularly like your entry for that as you've done so well with a colour you're not keen on. The card looks fab! Well done!

  2. What a fabulous sentiment... super card too!
    Thanks so much

  3. Always love green cards but rarely make them myself! These two are beauties, Monika, Jo x

  4. Wonderful cards. I love the stencil you used and the color choices. The sentiment is so cool. Love it.
    The cupcake card is cute and the background embossing and chevron paper is nice. You really do great cards. I am always inspired. Hugs

  5. I spy that stamp set again, fab. :)

  6. Such a lovely sentiment and your clever masking and stencilling give the design real depth! Great to see you at Less Is More, Monika :)

  8. the one layer card is my favorite one, but in contrast to you I LOVE green ;)
    Nice cards!
    Hugs, Eunice

  9. Two gorgeous cards. I loved your little tutorial too. Karen x

  10. I could use my stencils much more. Love how you've used yours here with a color combo (green and tricky but beautiful!) seeing your white framed version I think it looks good as this. I wouldn't have dared to continue from here, afraid to ruin, but glad you did, it dies look better with the green edges.
    The confetti on the cupcake is such a great detail, great combo of embossing and DP. Lovely version of the sketch, yummy!

  11. You have put a lot of work into your beautiful card.
    Thanks for sharing it with us at less is more,
