Peridot

This is my first challenge entry for DCM ...daringcardmakers and their theme this month is the colour of Peridot which is the birthstone for August. This month, Julia of the Stamping Ground and WOYWW fame, is guest designer which led me to enter in her honour!!
I'll post details tomorrow, when I've more time, of how to make the background. I made a few sheets ready to use on the project we made yesterday at the Victoria Stampers workshop, given by our guest tutor and friend Gill. I especially did the colours of the background of this piece to fit the challenge.
The stamp is one of my favourite quotes and it is by Stampendous but I don't think they make it any more.

Gorgeous card, Jo - and that is one of the stamps I was wanting to know where to get!! Love it. I can guess exactly how you made that background, too - but wouldn't have had a clue what colour peridot is, lol
