Just green

Hello friends,  yesterday was no crafting and blogging day. Both my son and I were not feeling well, I had to cancel work, and he stayed home too. I pretty much spent the day lying but not doing anhting.
There are a couple of cards sitting on my desk which need to be shared. Today I am up and energetic, and feeling great!! :D So thought of sharing, lets see how many I will do.

This one was made inspired by the HLS CAS challenge technique - Faux mother of pearl. I watched Loll's video to get an idea, I have no problem admitting that I had never heard of this technique before ;)

I used all white base and front here, I used the white perfect pearl to get the effect. Then used Stamping Up inks - wild wasabi, and pear pizzaz to ink the panel. I had bit of strip left out trimming the front, so used a tiny punch with clovers.
I used a big green felt clover, and added those tiny punched clovers on it. A few sequins in light and dark green, sentiment is from Clearly Besotted mini banners. I also added a gold and green glittery twine on the top to finish off. Hope you like it. There is another card with this technique to be shared.

There are a lot of challenges going on with the green and clover theme, so adding  to all ;)

    I hadn't heard of that faux mother of pearl either until all the cards kept popping up for that challenge - must try it out.
    So glad you and your son are feeling better now
