Fall Birthday Card - Green Tara & Authentique
I wanted to share another Green Tara card with you today. I've said it before, but I love pairing Green Tara with Authentique papers (these are from one of their earlier collections). For this card I wanted to highlight one of the new 3cm Rainforest Butterflies. This size is perfect for cards, and in the Bronze colour, it pairs wonderfully with the new Light Brown Roses.
I was so happy to receive some of these new Suede trims - not only are they great for wrapping around part of a card, but I'm looking forward to using them on a lot of 'Boy' scrapbook pages.
It's like someone read my mind when Green Tara started carrying these Wire Cords. I can shape them how I like, and they will stay that way. For this card, I wrapped the cord around a bamboo skewer, then tucked it in around the flowers to look like part of the 'greenery'.
