It’s Not Easy Being Green…for SSC177


It sometimes hard for people to get into the color green. I have siblings, not in love with the color at all! Myself…I LOVE GREEN!

My home is white, off-white, and green and red! At Christmas it is easy to decorate! I really don’t require a lot of stuff! Just pops of red and gold everywhere!


Today’s Color Challenge from Sunday Stamps Challenge SSC177

The focus seemed green. It also challenges with Navy Blue, Beige and Creamy colors too!

Here is the Challenge!



I really like this color combination!

(and those parfait cups look yummy too!)


Here is my Card!



The Card base is Tranquil Tide.

The mat is Night of Navy.

The stamped panel is Whisper White.

The bird is color blended with Crumb Cake and Sahara Sand

Stampin’ Write Markers.


Here is the stamped inside of my Card!


I stamped the inside sentiment in Night of Navy.


And I HAD to stamp an envelope to match!


I used my blender pen, to blend the colors in

the leaves and the berries and berry flowers.

I DID the same on the envelope!

  1. Remember the ABC after school specials? There was one that was about a bird that was the last in his flock or something, and migrating south. Meets a female bird, female gets shot when they stop at a farm and eat the seed. Anyway… this bird looks like that bird. ☺️

  2. Beautiful! I love simple stems, colored beautifully, as this one is! Thanks so much for playing at Sunday Stamps! (I’m a “I’m Just a Bill” girl, myself…)

  3. Stunning
