Stamps-a-faire Challenge #3, 4 and 6

For my last hurrah tonight I thought I would combine three challenges in one.  Challenge number 4 was to use " Ripe Avocado, Simply Chartreuse, Hawaiian Shores & Enchanted Evening".  Now I have always thought blue and green should never be seen or I think that's how the saying goes, but if Lisa Johnson can have blue and turquoise flowers then I'm game!

For number 6 "Your challenge this afternoon is to use the little notch technique to hold twine or ribbon in place across the cover of your project. You can use a circle punch of any diameter to create a round notch or a square punch for a square notch".
Here I used a small circle punch to notch out the ends and wound around some twine and popped on a ripe advocado button.

And finally challenge 3 -  "Punch a window from you card cover and tie ribbon or twine from the window to the side of your card"
I used the die from Sending You and popped it all up on foam squares.  The stamp set is Botanical Silhouettes.

That's it from me tonight - have a lovely evening if you are still crafting away!
