This is for Color Challenge 428. Gina K Apple Green for Lucky Limeade, PTI Aqua Mist for Pool Party and my neutral this week is PTI Spring Moss. I know, you don't care, you've given up on my not throwing in an extra color. Still, I feel always feel compelled to confess to the entirely obvious. And while I am on the subject of the entirely obvious - may I just say XYRON? Why did I not buy this thing a year ago, when I bought my first intricate die? Why is there not a standard procedure here on SCS, wherein the Card Police come to your house to catch you hunched over some complicated flourish with your Tombow Mono-Multi and stage a Xyron intervention?
I mean, I might still be gluing that black heart border down. even if you are looking at this a week after I posted it.
Of course I had to cover a good bit of my lovely Memory Box Cherish Border die with my focal image, which does, BTW, include this week's dessert (paper piercing). But don't worry, you can now count on seeing it on a lot of cards in future. A lot. (Any and all complaints on that score can be directed to the nice folks at Xyron.)
Thanks for looking!

I love your description of what happens to all of us....too soon old, too late smart!! I giggled at your reasoning, but only in empathy. Have fun with your new stuff, and seeing it often will make us happy!! Good job!!

Xyron is awesome for small or intricate diecuts, I love your heart strip! I was actually introduced to Xyron by a scrapbooker. You can't beat it for die cut letters! Love your mix of images especially the bg ferns!

You are so funny! You re allowed neutrals and last time I looked, black was a neutral, lol
A zyron is a wonderful thing till you run out....then it is back to mono multi until you can get to a store...

Rachel you are just too funny! But in all honesty, I could NOT LIVE withhout my Xyron. I always make sure I have a spare cartridge in the cupboard. They are life savers. And back to your card, it is terrific! I have that MB border die too and it's new as well, but have not used it yet. NOthing better than new toys!!

Love the graphic look of your card with the image stamped in black on the green - wonderful sentiment and use of pattern! You mean there's a crafting item I don't have and can't live without???? Oh no!!!!!

You are really a hoot, Rachel, but to be honest with you, I didn't even know what a xyron was until I just googled it! Ha Ha Ha! I can see where it would come in handy with those intricate little die-cuts! So glad you came out to play today~
