Blue and Green

Less is More this week is -

As it is the first of the month and colour we have chosen
Blue & Green
There is an old saying
Blue & Green should not be seen, Unless there's a colour inbetween!
In this day and age no colour combo is taboo, in some cases the wilder the better.
You may wish to go natural, with summer blue skies and green foliage or quirky, snazzy,
navy and lime. It's completely up to you, we cannot wait to see what you come up with.
Well here is my card, actually 2 cards and I could have done more, but the sun was calling me outside after work, what a wonderful couple of days for a change.

The house is by Bugaboo and is paper pieced and coloured  in PS, the DP is by Audrey Jean Roberts, I added the ribbon, blue for the sky and green for the grass! sorry that's how my mind worked at that moment.  The card has gone a bit curved going through the printer, but that will be corrected with a bit of weight on it.

My second card was a fluke, because I was looking for DP's to go into the house card and I came across this DP by Kara Henry at craftastical, blue and green - just the colours, so I cut a piece of the DP and copied one of the cars in PS and enlarged it, the border frame is also from the kit. So another card was born and so simply too, of course I had to add Stickles and I added 2 buttons, can you tell I made up the sentiment, I know, simple!

I am entering the following challenges

Both your cards are great Faith. I love the cute little house on the first and think the cars are a cute way to welcome a new baby boy.
