CAS ~ 3rd time's a Charm...

I have to admit that I absolutely L.O.V.E. a green and purple combination.  I don't know what it is, but if I only had 2 colours to choose from to make all my cards with, these would be the ones I would pick.  I first saw them used together on a Christmas card over 7 years ago, and I was hooked!  So for this week's Challenge, I thought I would share my love of this colour combo with you!

What do you think?  Isn't it a pretty duo?  Like Sonny & Cher, Peanut Butter & Jam, Baileys & Iced Cappuccino, these pairs should not stand alone!  Okay, maybe I've taken it a bit too far, but have you ever HAD Baileys in your Ice Cap?  Trust me, it's Delish!

And of course, I'm keeping with my own personal challenge to show you different cards using the same stencil, (my favorite!) background stencil, Waterlilies LJ 861.  I machine Embossed the Stencil on Light Green Cardstock, and used the EM-bossed side for the larger background piece, and the DE-bossed side for the smaller "Main Image" piece.  I like to mix up the textures for a varied look.

After I embossed the cardstock, I added Dreamweaver's Metallic F/X to add shine to the cardstock.  It's hard for the camera to pick up this detail, but trust me, in person, just that little bit of glimmer, really adds depth to our "simple" card.  

So now it's YOUR turn, and I can see that there are a lot of you out there, who have been inspired by this challenge and have posted your creations to Mr Linky, AWESOME!   Keep playing along, as you know there are great prizes to be won at the end of this challenge as the following stencils are up for grabs...

And of course, don't forget to visit the other Dream Team blogs, I love how different everyone's projects are...and don't forget to leave comments, we love that!
And with that,
Emboss with Enthusiasm,
Paste 'til you're Purple,
and get Grubby 'til you're Green,
tee hee
