Lime,black and white

Good morning. It's holiday time over here at the moment and although we aren't going away anywhere at the moment because of family commitments we've taken a day off here and there to chill out. The weather is fantastic and Northern Ireland is so beautiful that we are really enjoying whatever days we can. It means there is not much crafting being done - so the cards I'm sharing at the moment are ones I had already made a couple of weeks ago.
This one is a little different from my preferred floral paper style but I like it for a change - I've mixed the petal shapes from two Punch and Stamp sets (Clematis, Lily and Poinsettia with Rose, Pansy, Camelia and Gardenia) and made a few buds by twisting the petal shapes with tweezers. The beautiful diecut at the top of the Trellis wall is from a Branches die and the border punch used is the Diamond Scallop.
I have used Papermill white linen cardstock for the card base, flowers and diecutting. The black and lime green card is also from Papermill.
