The way to use it challenge was green. Not a colour I usually use but this green is not too bad! I also used the sketch from yesterday's challenge which was nice and simple. The main image is a serviette using the Faux Silk technique. I embossed with cuttlebug and SU folders and used my home made twine as the embellishment. This one is fairly simple with none of the sponging or distressing that usually clutters my up cards. Believe it or not no glitter either! OMG..the sky is fallingL!!! LOL

Sue, you have the MOST gorgeous napkins to use on your cards. This rose is stunning and really "pops" against your beautifully embossed bg panels. I like the soft green with it...a true emerald would have looked to "Christmas-y" IMO. : ) This is a lovely feminine card.
