Embellish Decorative Trim Challenge

I was finally able to sit and make a card after almost a week! Gosh! life just took over...extra swimming practice,  taking parents around, double cooking, cleaning, taking kids to other extra activities..... I spent this entire week in my car :( I had two hours to spare this morning and hence I could make a card for the new Embellish challenge. This week is the decorative trim challenge.

And here is my take on the challenge

A pocket card. Love the idea of pocket and able to write a sentiment on it and decorate it.
Here are some closeups...

I love this color combination. Three different types of green. My favorite color is green and always love the trims. They add texture to the card. And there are so many types of trims available now a days. Particularly love the velvet ones and the rhinestone ones from Prima Marketing.

The pattern paper is from Kaisercraft's new release Chanteuse papers, Maya Road kraft envelope, Prima Marketing green trim, flowers and white trim flower, Kaisercraft trims and stamps, Papertrey Ink Happy Birthday sentiments, Jenny Bowlin twine and SU cardstock.

Love how my card turned out. Hope you like it too.
Have a great weekend!

Hey green is a colour I am very partial too. A lovely mixture of shades of green and texture. Another winner, Gayatri.
