One of this month's Creative Crew challenges was a color focus using SU!'s Woodland Walk dsp as a guide (Garden Green, Wild Wasabi, Very Vanilla, Crumb Cake and Chocolate Chip). I've never been a fan of either Garden Green OR Wild Wasabi, but I have to admit that I really like this color combination! The earth tones really ground them the brighter greens.
I think that the stars of this card are the shabby, distressed scallop trim down the center and the sentiment. I love doing the peeling wallpaper with the First Edition dsp.

Lisa ... this is my favourite project in the whole gallery. I LOVE IT :) You have GOT to show me how to do that peeling wallpaper, I tried it and mine ended up looking like the dog chewed it ... hee hee.

This whole card is the star the show. I love the sentiment and all the supporting details. Great shabby-chique card. Love everything about it -- the torn newsprint, the shabby borders, the sentiment (as I said), the layout, the re-appearance of some retired wild wasabi ribbon. Sweet card.
