B&W with a splash of Emerald

Hi there!

I hope everyone is doing fine on this beautiful Sunday morning! Mine is a happy one because our daughter is here for a short stop over from Switzerland, before she starts her internship at the beautiful Sandals Resort on the island of St Lucia in the Caribbean.

She will be away for 6 months. That's a long time, so I am enjoying every moment with her!

I managed to squeeze in a card for 2 of my favorite challenges...

I used my Emerald green Promarker to selectively color blocks from the template I downloaded from The pixel scrapper. I also colored a white satin ribbon with the same color to get an exact match in the colors.

Thanks for visiting me today, I hope you have a great week!

Baie mooi, veral omdat die groen my gunsteling is!

I get a very 70s vibe from that colour and from the geometric pattern - very fun! Enjoy your time with your daughter (you'll probably have to go visit her in St Lucia, just to make sure she's ok, right? lol!)

This card is just gorgeous! I love how those touches of green just pop from your card! The first few weeks will be the longest without your daughter and then after that you will be amazed at how fast the time flies by.
