Lime and black at Less Is More

The current challenge over at Less Is More is a colour theme - lime and black. Yikes - if I hadn't just had a SU order here with lime card in that could have been a real struggle:
I used:

- 5.75" x 5.75" square card, made using SU's 'Lucky Limeade' card stock

- a snippet of white card, stamped with Memento 'Tuxedo Black' and three handbags from a Personal Impressions set by Kirsty Wiseman called 'Bags of Fun'. I tickled the butterflies on the left bag, the flower centre and handle on the right bag with a 'Lime Green' Pro Marker then punched two tiny flowers from paper, also coloured with the same Pro Marker. They were layered onto the centre bag and a little black gem popped onto the centre of the flower. 

- the white card was then layered onto a snippet of black card

- sentiment is from the same set, stamped with Memento 'Tuxedo Black'

I'd also like to enter this into the current challenge over at Addicted to Stamps and More, where your entry must be Clean and Simple.

Oh I LIKE this! Saw the one that Heather Telford did with these colors. This is such a dramatic color combo (don't think I have any lime either). Your little bags are so cute, and really perk up the theme here. Loved the sentiment with these purses too...you always have just the right one! TFS & Hugs
