Summer Card Camp Week 4-Color Combo Challenge

I can't believe its week 4 of summer card camp already. WOW it flew by....
This week's challenge is right up my alley...Yep Green and Teal....YUMMY! 
Over the weekend I started making a card for my boss at work and could you believe it went right with this weeks color challenge. Marie (that's my boss) has been giving me some awesome cooking tips for cooking some of my newly grown veggies from my garden. She let me borrow a cookbook with some great recipes in it and I wanted to give her a little thank you card when I return the book. 

I used the apron from the Savory Cricut Lite cartridge and cut off the strings to add my seam binding. I used my Gypsy to hide some of the other cuts on the base of the apron and then made my own little pocket. I also added the satin ruffle at the bottom and then went a little bling happy...lol 

That's all for today!!
Have a great day (it's gonna be a hot one) :)

Cardstock: Spring Moss (Paper Trey Ink)
