This card was made specifically for the colourQ Challenge #324. I thought the color combination was unusual so wanted to see if I could come up with something that would suit the requirements. I always find it difficult to photograph cards with foiled cardstock and this card was no exception.

Because Glorious Green is a retired product, I used Garden Green as a substitute.

A grid was die cut from all required colors except white, then adhered to a white panel. A die cut oval in silver was popped up on the front of the card and die cut flowers and leaves were also added and popped up for dimension. The sentiment was die cut and adhered to the oval. A strip of cardstock was added to the right side of the panel and the entire panel was adhered to a card base in Garden Green. The inside of the card was lined with white cardstock and die cut flowers were adhered.
