The monotone green card is very pleasing to the eye.  I used the returning Mint Macaron (happy dance) and the fabulous Tranquil Tide!  I think they pair perfectly!

Giving your focal points an extra pop by adding Dimensionals is always a must on my creations.  If you are not a fan of fussy cutting, you can sure stamp the image right on the Watercolor Paper and it will still look fabulous!
