DCM - The Emerald Isle

This weeks it's the monthly birthstone team dare from the Daring Cardmakers Team.

"Throughout this year, our first dare each month is given over to cards inspired by that month's birthstone

"Prized since ancient times, a fine emerald can be more expensive than a high quality diamond of the same carat weight."

The May birthstone is the Emerald and we'd like you to use this beautiful gem as the inspiration for your cards this week. We'd like to see more than just a tiny spot of emerald green on your cards, too!"

Here's my my card inspired by the colour green but also the newest product in my office the "Extra Large Two Step Bird Punch".  The bird, the bird's wing and the leafy branch are all punched using that one punch.

All supplies Stampin' Up!®: -
Stamp Set - Best Yet (Level One Hostess Set)
Paper - Whisper White, Glorious Green, Green Galore and Summer Sun Cardstock
Ink - Green Galore and Summer Sun Classic Ink Pads
Punches - Corner Rounder, Extra Large Two Step Bird Punch, Designer Label Punch
Accessories - Big Shot, Perfect Polka Dot Embossing Folder, Stampin' Sponges, Paper Cutter, Paper Snips, Snail Adhesive, Stampin' Dimensionals.
