Watercolour background - 3 shades of green

Hi all.  Today I'm sharing with you a quick card using a Simon says stamp 'Blessed' set on a very simple watercolour background.

My colour inspiration for this card is from the latest Runway Challenge, I think the dress is gorgeous, it's very simple yet very striking.  I just love it.

So I used yellow, lime green and tea green these three colours to create this very simple but organic-looking background to mimic the floaty dress, and stamped my sentiment in black.

Also over at the CAS-ual Fridays, the latest challenge is ' Three Thirds'.  There are lots of 3s on my card:  I used 3 colours, the main focal point is 1/3 of the card, the sentiment is 3 lines, and even the gems are 3, lol.  So I'll submit my card to that challenge as well.

Do play along and have some fun!
