Shades of Green for an Amazing Friend

same card, different lighting....

  I am having so much FUN playing with my Martha Stewart *ALL OVER THE PAGE PUNCHES* and have been creating some new fab backgrounds with these... the possibilities seem endless. The reviews for these are quite mixed, but I happen to just LOVE THEM for their versatility!! Check out some of the comments along with tips and tricks regarding these punches HERE. It takes a little practice, but the results are AWESOME!! Hope you will give them a try.

Stamps: Hero Arts, Verve
Paper: Green DP, Cream CS
Ink: Marcy Matchables, Studio G Greens
Accessories: Spellbinders, Marianne Designs Dies, MS All Over Page Punch, CB EF, Adhesive Pearls. Hat Pin, Gems, Beads, Satin Ribbon
Techniques: Sponging, Dry Embossing
 This was my entry for the Inspirational Challenge #IC327, found over at SCS, aka: Love this fabulous site of Fashionable Hand Fans called; *A Cool Breeze*.  These are gorgeous and elegant Fans. I was inspired by this particular one for its lovely shades of greens and creams:
