Going Green With A Little Grey!!

I hope your all ok out there? Huge hugs for those of you who are poorly. I just wanted to say a huge thank you for the messages I have had about my migraine! I don't get them very often, but when I do they totally floor me! So huge a thank you again xx

 Today is the start of a new challenge over at The Perfect Sentiment! Where this week we have a colour challenge for you..


I must admit when I saw the challenge I did panic lol  But after sitting down & thinking about it I really enjoyed making this card. I very, very rarely use green as a main colour, to be honest I think this

A really lovely creation, Shell.....love the layers, and the papers are so pretty. Beautifully coloured up image, too, and that big corner is a really nice touch. Hope you continue to get your strength back....even an ordinary headache can be debilitating, so a full-blown migraine must be awful! :)
