Feel Better

Hey guys, Becky with you tonight. I have a get well card to share with you tonight. My inspiration came from two places. First, the color scheme. Last months issue of Country Living, which I don't have a picture of, had this fabulous black and white bedroom with a lime green title. I loved it and knew I wanted to make a card using those colors. The second part of my inspiration came from Dawn McVey and her fabulous distressed flowers! After reading her post, I went downstairs and got to work! I matted a piece of black cardstock, which I ran through my Cuttlebug with my Swiss Dots embossing folder, onto my card base. Then I trimmed a piece of lime green cardstock and punched the edge with my new EK Success punch and stamped my sentiment, from PTI's Mixed Messages, at the bottom. Then I made Dawn's distressed flower and adhered it. This card came together really quick since I knew what colors to use and what my main focal point would be. I hope you have a great night!

Love your green you used and the big black button is a fabulous accent. Way to rock out this color challenge.
