Less is More Week 79 Colour 'Blue and Green'

"Blue and green should never be seen," or so the saying goes, but this week's challenge on Less is More is a colour challenge to use those very colours.
I started a card for last week's sketch challenge but didn't get to finish it in time, so my first card is based on that sketch but the colours are blue and green - with a little bit of pink!!

Dies: Sizzix Framelits 'Doodle Flower', My Favorite Things 'Simply Scallops' Die-namics
Paper: strip cut from 12x12" unknown, DCWV cardstock
Stamp: Woodware 'Jane's Script'
Other: Button and thread from stash

Because I thought I wouldn't get away with this one as 'blue and green', I made another card using a different Sizzix Framelits set (loving these!)

Dies: Sizzix Hero Arts Stamp and Die set 'Floral', Dienamics 'Fishtail flag stax'
Spellbinders 'Labels 20'
Paper: K&Co K-Ology 'Addison' coloured with Distress Inks 'Shabby Shutters'
Inks: Memento 'Blue Danube', 'Cottage Ivy', DI 'Shabby Shutters'

Had a BBQ tonight at home and am off to watch Dirty Dancing at the Hippodrome on Saturday night so a good weekend in store!
That's all folks......

They are both FAB
I like the funky flower of the first and the arrangement of the second, very pretty. I love framelits too!
Thanks very much

I'm sorry I'm so late in commenting on these lovely cards!
I love the clean cut style of the second one.
Thanks so much
