Dutch Dare Challenge #31: antoher colorcombination

Yesterday afternoon I took the girls to one of my favorite scrapbooking stores. And of course they had to shop too.

They both already know the glitter paper section is forbidden territory (1,50 to 2,50 Euro for 1 piece of papers), but weak as I am I told them them they could pick one piece of those fancy papers. Because I wanted to do some shopping myself I didn't pay that much attention on what they were putting in their shopping basket. They did ask me if they could have some flowers and rub-ons too, and as they were told they picked both of one (my sweeties can be vrey brave).

When we returned home they were putting all their new goodies on the kitchentable and showed me everything with pride.

At first I was shocked, but a minute later I had to laugh. They had 7 patterned papers each, and not a sinlge one was below 1 euro. When I told them they had picked the most expensive papers there where (all papers with velvet, embossing etc), their answer was: 'Mum you just said we could pick one paper with glitter!!'. And that was so true. I forgot to tell them that all embossed and with velvet covered papers were forbidden territory too. Have to remember that for the next time we go shopping.

Enough about our (very expensive) shopping trip and on to this weeks challenge on the Dutch Dare.
This weeks challenge is to use the colors GREEN - BLUE and BROWN as main colors on your card.

I already made my DT-card a few days back, but when we were shopping yesterday I found some fabulous papers from Kaiser Crafts which were really perfect for this weeks challenge.
Because I had to work yesterday evening I had to made my new DT-Card this morning. The ink and glue was still wet when the picture was taken.
