Soft Green or Teal?

Good morning! I'm doing this as a scheduled post as I've a feeling that Sunday is going to be a busy day! Again!  We're having some family and friends round to help my husband celebrate his 'big birthday' which is on Tuesday. He said he didn't want a party but we explained that people would still want to pop in, so we're now having what we're all calling a 'Non-Party Party'!  So it's an afternoon tea with bottles of bubbly stuff and lots of cakes and nibbles! So on Sunday morning I'll be doing my Sergeant-Major impersonation, shouting instructions to everyone (who'll mostly ignore me anyway) in an effort to get the house into some semblance of order before people arrive! Me? Bossy? Perish the thought!  It might be a big birthday for him to come to terms with, but I'm still getting my head around the fact that I'll be married to a 60 year old! I'm only 24 (inside, lol!). Sigh.

Anyway, thought I'd share a card with you that I made with a cute Saturated Canary digi - Nevaeh.  I'm never quite sure whether I'd call this colour 'soft green' or 'teal' - what do you think?


I've coloured her with promarkers and made it into a 6" square gatefold card

I was quite pleased with the dress, but still not convinced about my 'blonde' hair colouring. I struggle most with blonde and grey hair! 
The backing papers are from First Edition. And decided to challenge myself to make a girly card without using flowers or too many embellies! 
So hope you like it! 
I'll let you know how birthday boy enjoys his 'non-party party' lol! 
Back soon, 
Kim x

  8. This is gorgeous Kim as always, and as for your blonde hair colouring, when i was scanning this post before reading it I thought to myself "hmm, I must ask her what colours she uses for her blonde hair, it looks great" so....what colours did you use for your hair if you don't mind me asking?! Also, I'd go with it being teal myself :) Lovely colour combo and great CAS style :)

  9. This is gorgeous as per usual Kim. Your colouring is awesome, I can't see anything wrong with the hair. I would say it is teal. Hope the non party party has gone on off with no hitches and your orders were carried out to the letter. Lol!!! My hubby is older than me and will be 70 in April. Now that is really old. Lol!!!

  10. Sweet card and I think the blond hair looks great. There is definitely too much blue in that colour to call it soft green - it's teal to me.

  15. Beautiful card Kim. It's hard to say really, but I think I'd go with geal or treen. ;-) Actually, at first I thought green, but the more I look, the more teal it looks. Whatever it is, it's great.
    Luv, Babs xo

  16. Kim, this is a lovely card. What lovely soft colours you have used. I love your colouring of the hair, I always do brown without thinking must try blonde. Tracey xx

  17. Hi Kim, awwww isn't she just gorgeous! And a wonderful colour choice - I couldn't say whether it was teal or green - am terrible with naming colours!!

    Hope hubby's non party-party went well - know how it feels to be married to a person of more advanced years - mine turned 52 this year. Don't know how that happened, or how I got to 42 either!!!

    PS - Your blonde hair colouring is lovely, if you ever want to try a new combo drop me a line, and I'll give you my colour combo as well.
