green and gold

Hi there!

Chrissie asked the question this week about what the colors green and gold bring to our minds... well... being South-African, the first thing that comes to my mind is sport! That's the colors of our national sport teams!

With the rugby world cup starting on the 18th of this month, I made a 'congrats' card for this week's challenge at Less is more , featuring a laurel wreath and banner, hoping for victory for the Springboks this year!

green and gold congrats card

The wreath is a clipart image I found here. I traced it in my Silhouette programme and used the negative of the cut layered over a lime green background.

The banner is from the Silhouette online store.

The Congrats is from Miss kate cuttables.

That's it for today... have a great week and thanks for the visit!

Ai, vrou, ja, met 'n klomp fossiele in ons span weet mens nie wat die kanse van die stomme Bokke is nie, ne, maar mens kan droom van 'n herhaling van daai wonderlike oorwinning in 1995, ne!!!! My ma se altyd mens staan by jou span, maak nie saak of hulle verloor nie, so ons sal altyd hard skree vir ons manne in groen en goud!!!
Jou kaartjie lyk pragtig!!!! Ek is mal oor daai uitgesnyde krans en die goue lint met die gelukwensing so in swart!!!! Al die white space is natuurlik lieflik en ek hou weer van die ronde hoekies!!!! Baie mooi!!!!
Ek is darem nou amper weer heeltemal op datum met my blogbesoeke!!!!

Love this card, Hannelie. First thing I thought of was the Springboks too. Hope they do well at the RWC.

And green and gold are the colors of our (American) football team here in Wisconsin; the Green Bay Packers. Though, I'll admit, I like baseball much more! Love how your card reflects victory; laurel wreath and congratulatory banner. Great card! Have a great week sweet friend. Bev

I love this card, Hannelie - another perfect use of negative space. However, I should point out that I will be supporting the All Blacks in the upcoming RWC :) :) :)

Hello Hannelie: I love how you used the negative on this die cut, the colors are so bright and a perfect match for your Country's Flag.
Fabulous Victory card.

Gorgeous! Love the die cut negative and the sparkle of the banner. I actually have a SA rugby shirt that I love - it's so comfy! Go Springboks!

Geri said...

Love the depth you created by popping up the wreath on a green panel! Another cool idea!!!

I love the lime green and like hearing how the colours inspire people. That wreath looks great revealing the colour behind.
Thanks for sharing with us.
