I never want to live without you

This week for blogger's challenge, our list Mom, Lisa gave us a color theme of brown, yellow and green.  I've had this paper sitting on my desk for about a week and a half now, knowing that I would use it for this challenge.

The challenge for me came in what set to use.  I kept on pulling out various sets and seeing what would look good before deciding on these images from Verve Stamps.  I used the layout from Skipping Stones Design this week as well.


The paper I used is from Basic Grey Wander and I used some of the new colors I just got from Clear & Simple Stamps- Green with Envy and Golden Tiara.  Loving the new colors they have to offer!!!


So here is my finished piece and you can't tell but the little chocolate blog is not a piece of melted chocolate on my card but it's a flower.  I couldn't get a great picture of it, but it does look much better in person.

Check out the other blogger's here to see how they used green, yellow and brown in their creations this week.

Card details:
Stamps: One Person, Text Objects from Verve Stamps
Inks: Dish All the Dirt Brown, Green With Envy and Golden Tiara from Clear & Simple Stamps
Cardstock: Golden Tiara, Blanc Check from Clear & Simple Stamps, Basic Grey Wander
Accessories: Green with Envy button & Dish All the Dirt Brown ribbon from Clear & Simple Stamps, twine, flower
