Essentials by Ellen Color Trend "Verdure" Challenge - It's Your Day

The current Color Trend Challenge from Essentials by Ellen showcases the color of the year, Ultra Violet, along with sky blue, several greens and a couple of mustard/golden brown shades.

I got out my Kuretake water colors to use not because I enjoy them, but because I want to improve my water coloring skills.  I find it difficult and frustrating, but I don't want to give up!

The Mondo Sakura stamp designed by Julie Ebersole for EBE is the star of my card, I used it for last month's Color Trend Challenge too.  This time I made a square birthday card using about 3/4 of the image and turned it upside down.   I'm happy with the way it turned out.  The very dear friend I made it for  is always so appreciate of my handmade cards, and I think she will like it too.

Thanks for stopping by to take a look, and I appreciate any comments you care to leave.  Have a great day.
