Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge: Green

It's time for a new challenge at the Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge: Green.

I was working on this challenge this past weekend after it had occurred to me that I had a lot of Easter cards to make.  Although the image on this challenge didn't say "Easter" to me - I knew the word "green" would work.  New growth, new life - all perfect for Easter.  Then I found a palm die that I had forgotten I had and I knew it was meant to be!

Things took a bit of a left turn at that point.  I planned on a green palm.  I didn't want a solid palm - so I tried brushing on various greens, sponging greens and I almost broke out the watercolors when I realized that my problem was that my greens were just too heavy for the card.  I wanted a light and airy card. So I cut the palm out of white and brushed some limeade on the background.  It ended up not fully representative of the word "green" but I was definitely inspired by it!!

I hope to see you playing along with the "green" challenge at the Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge!

Really a lovely and light Easter card! Couldn't you just see this as an Easter Sunday banner in front of the church?! It would be really pretty! As is your card. And in such pretty greens, too. Love this!! Bev

Just the right amount of green, I think, to highlight the sentiment and the palm fronds perfectly! Beautiful card!
