A very simple card today, inspired by my favourite challenge and a beach towel found here.

I am using a new to me stencil from a Colorful Life, and the sentiment is from Picket Fence Studios. 
 I wanted more depth of colour for my card than the beach towel has, so for the green I used 2 colours, Twisted Citron base and Mowed Lawn over on a few leaves. On a few more I used just the Mowed Lawn, then the Cracked Pistachio.
 I trimmed the leaves panel and attached a matching matting, then stamped with the Cracked Pistachio, doing so very lightly so as not to get a bleed, which usually works, but not always. Today was a lucky day.
I really like the results and hope you do as well.
