First off I hope your Mom is feeling better, Hugs to her!
Thanks for the challenge today, glorious green is so on the bottom of my list I never use it , but I did today and here is what I came up with!
I am a person who likes green, but I am not fond of Glorious Green. However, I did use it last weekend for VSN for my Tote Bag, since it worked with the bright colors I was using.
Today, I came up with two cards using Glorious Green. For my first card, I played with my new sets:
Big Pieces, Little Pieces, and Seeing Spots.
Glorious Green seems to work best for me when it is used with other bold bright colors.
For my second card, I started with some ribbon, and things went downhill from there. Here is my ugly card. It isn't like I wasted a perfectly good piece of paper to make the card. It was Glorious Green, after all.
While we are on the subject of green (I have no Glorious Green-which color group was it with anyway?) -I digress-did anyone notice in one of the new card magazines-gotta go look to see which-they made shamrocks out of prima flowers? They just clipped one of the five petals out and added a little stem-I am gonna go play with greens and that idea-even if I lack GG. Susie
The only thing I changed was to use poppin' pastels and I changed the greeting from good luck to Happy St. Patrick's Day. I actually really like this card and will use it in my early march workshops. TFL!
That is a tricky colour. Although as I was thinking about what I could do, I remembered a layout I did a few weeks ago using the Dots and Dashes paper from the last IBC - it has LOTS of Glorious Green!:
Thanks for hostessing this challenge, Julia -- Glorious Green is definitely not a color I have ever used, but I really like the way my cards came out today. So glad your Mom is home for now - enjoy your time with her !
I never use this color unless it is for a Christmas card...oh well, I found something to do with it. I think I got a little carried away with the background though...Island Green. Thanks for the challenge, it was definatly challenging

Whoa! Great challenge, Julia! I HATE Glorious Green- he he he... so this could really cause me to like it perhaps. Wish I had time to stamp tonight but I think I am turning in. So I will have to add it tomorrow. Hope everyone will still take a peak.
And it is really just great to know your mum is home and in the loving hands she should be!
