Congrats to you both

Morning and welcome to my 3rd post as GD over at JUGS.
Here's my card for you for this week's colour challenge.

I chose green for my optional colour.

My son is of an age when his friends and colleagues are getting married so it's been Mum, have you got a card ...... .
Well, I decided to use that request as my inspiration using the colours of the challenge, my extra colour had to be green for the foliage. 
After a traumatic wait for my Concord and 9th prize and almost £15 in import VAT and handling, I thought I better use it! As it was from a guy, I thought I would keep it pretty simple with just a few PPP sequins added.
The background was stamped on white using Memento London Fog and trimmed down to fit. On a separate scrap of card I stamped just one of the bouquets and die cut it before stamping in the foliage and flowers. A separate die cut flower was cut and stamped with Abandoned Coral DOx 1st and 2nd generation and some extra green ferny branches coloured with Altenew's Parrot and Olive and added to the bouquet.
The sentiment panel was stamped with a greeting from HLS in London Fog and a XCut Congrats coloured with the same Abandoned Coral. I decided to pop the finished die cut up on fun foam for added dimension.

OK, that's it from me but please check out the rest of the team here and join in.
It's a busy day here on my blog, so I'll be back again in a few hours with some more inspiration.
