LIM week 62 - Three Shades of Green

The challenge on Less is More this week is Three Shades of Green. I'd been mulling over in my head using the SU medallion stamp but was going to stamp it half off the card with a framed sentiment. But whilst have a little test run decided that the second generation ink on one side of the stamp with fresh ink on the other looked rather nice and then this Clarity stamp sentiment was on my desk just waiting to be used - this is the result!
What a wash out today is - typical BH. We did get to the pictures yesterday to see Mirror Mirror the new take on Snow White (along with the other movie and TV show!) it is really fantastic and I loved all the costumes.

I'd also like to enter this card into Crafty Catz challenge for CAS cards.

I love that technique of less of the same colour on one part - works beautifully on your super three greens card

This is stunning Lynn, so elegant.

I've never entered LIM but decided to have a go this week, but afraid my card ended up More is Less so no use at all. Will try again.
