One + Twelve ~ Month 2

This is my One Plus Twelve card, my second month of 2021!  This was the brainchild of Kelly and she asked Jeanette and me to join her in this challenge in 2019. We are to use just one stamp, to make a card every month and post on the 3rd of each month.  It was so much fun that the three of decided to continue for our third year and pick a new image to use.

For 2021, I picked a Gina K Designs set called Thankful Greenery.  I think this set is so pretty and I can see in my mind many ways that I can use this image.  Plus--I will have 12 thank you cards at the end of the year!

For this month's card, I stamped the image with Hero Arts Intense Black ink on my white cardstock.  I then colored in the leaves and berries or flowers with my Copic Sketch markers.  I die cut the image with my Stampin' Up Stitched So Sweetly scalloped rectangle die. The background is a piece of Stampin' Up Fancy Frost Specialty Designer Series Paper that I added Taylored Expressions Lime Zest ink with a blender brush. The sentiment is from the same set.  I added a few yellow enamel dots for the final touch!

Here is the inside of my card, with a strip of washi tape:

I hope Kelly and Jeanette like my card and that you might too! Be sure to check back every month on the 3rd to see our cards!

Barb, your card is so pretty - the bright green looks fabulous! (We both chose green this month.) I really like the additional sentiment you used, too!

this is so pretty with the greens you have used Barb - well done. Were you and Jeanette channeling each other with the colour choice?
