"Beauty", Three Cards and
"Wrap Up for Christmas"
by Jan Rankine

 Hi everyone - it doesn't matter what colour you need for a layout,
Green Tara has it.  I loved doing this page in beautiful, vibrant red
using several different flowers.

I have teamed some of their gorgeous fabric flowers with
roses, daisies & finished off with some of their velvet leaves.

Stamping, distressing, inking, some more flowers and the
addition of some rather spectacular chipboard
 finishes this page off perfectly.

"For You Card"

I love making cards with Green Tara products - I can really
indulge myself and "go to town".  I've used five
Ribbons on this card which I've listed below.
I also used 4cm Heirloom and the beautiful new
Pale Green Primula.  Fitting in beautifully is one
gorgeous Mint Rose and two Skeleton Leaves.

"Get Well Card"

I've used five Ribbons and Laces on this card - 
4cm Heirloom and 4.5cm Primula, a Cherry Blossom,
Swarovski Crystal, and two little Mini Flowers
  - such fun!!!

"Happy Birthday Card"


This colour combination has long been one of my
favourites, and once again Green Tara doesn't disappoint.
Purple and green 4.5cm Primulas, a Cherry Blossom,
 some Roses and Velvet Leaves, all available in
exactly the colour you want.  Five Ribbons once again
on this card, which I have listed below.  The new  
Silver Diamonte Trim comes by the metre
but I have cut motifs separately to embellish my card.

"Wrap Up For Christmas"

This was a layout I did for a challenge over at "Once Upon a Sketch".
Of course we don't have snow in Australia at Christmas but I thought
this gorgeous photo just had be scrapped about snow.


This gorgeous Wild Rose flower looks just right.

I'm particularly partial to butterflies and this little quote quite
touched my heart.
