Spring Window Box


The spring weather still hasn't arrived in the UK - it's still cold but at least we've got sunshine :) So in the meantime I'm making do with a spring window box on a card.  Luckily the challenge at Addicted to CAS is Spring.


The inspiration came from this gorgeous card from the very talented Julie Ebersole, who is the March Muse at CASE Study (love the classy new-look blog!).


The colour scheme comes from Dynamic Duos where this week's challenge is to use deep pink and one colour of our choice. 

I went with a rather juicy green, Chartreuse by Impress (Tsukineko).  I've had it years and it's still as juicy as when I bought it.

This card actually fits another three challenges, but one of them only allows a maximum combination of three.  Luckily I made a similar card, which you will see in the next post.  You won't be seeing double, but not far off!
