Hello lovely bloggers - hope you're keeping warm, dry and safe in this wet and windy UK weather.
A short post today, with my offering for the GREEN challenge at LESS IS MORE.

The image is Indigo Blu "Tree-mendous", inked with Versafine Spanish Moss, Color Box Moss Green and  Color Box Olive. I applied the inks to give a slightly darker shade towards the tree trunk.
The layers of cardstock are left-overs  of River Rock (love this colour) from SU, and a dark green from Bazill (no idea what it's called)!
The heart is punched from a snippet of red glitter card which I LOVE.
Ribbon from stash
Sentiment from a fabulous set by Layers of Colour Art Stamps.
I am also entering this card into Jules' Snippets challenge at Always with a Heart
Hope you are all ready for Christmas now, with cards made, cakes baked and all that jazz - 
have a great weekend - love to all ~
