Less is More - Week 62 Three Shades of Green

Thanks to the typical Bank Holiday weather and me feeling unwell, the Easter weekend was a bit of a washout.  However the girls enjoyed the 'indoor' egg hunt and today, when I was supposed to be back at work, the weather changed so I booked an extra day's leave and we drove out to our friend's farm in Ludlow and had a brilliant day riding on a trailer on the back of a quad bike, feeding the baby lambs and  finished off with a lovely meal in a little country pub. The girls really enjoyed themselves and both fell asleep on the journey home.

Stamps: Leaves Set from http://www.craftfairy.co.uk/, Craftwork Cards 'Springtime and Sentiments'
Inks: Distress inks Peeled Paint, Shabby Shutters
Embellishments: Kraft card, twine, button

All the green of the countryside reminded me to post my entry for this week's Less is More challenge which is Three Shades of Green. I don't know why but green always makes me want to go 'au naturale', hence the twine and kraft card.

What a beautiful card. I just popped over from Craft Fairy to see what you'd done with the stamps set and it is so elegant.
