JAI 157 - Just add green

Hello there,
this week we have green on our minds at Just Add Ink. Yes, just in time for St Patrick's Day our challenge this week is to Just Add Green. BUT it has to be more than just a dash of green! The first thing that crossed my mind was leaves, foliage and flowers and then BAM!! this completely different idea popped into my head. To be honest I still feel a bit borderline about this one - but then I usually do about any CAS cards I make. Keeping it CAS/ one layer is really challenging for me!

Like I said one layer - eeek! My idea was to have a cascade of staggered green chevrons, each level pointing to part of the sentiment. As I said I feel a bit uncertain about this one, yet at the same time I kind of like it - I like the patterned chevrons and I like the colour punch of the hot pink and that little touch of embossed detail. 

Do go and check out the wonderful array of green creations the rest of the DT has come up with. Thanks for visiting,
