Over on Daring Cardmakers Challenge Blog, the theme is the Birthstone of August which is Peridot and they have set the challenge as:-
The August birthstone is the

The colour of the peridot can range from lime, yellowish green, olive green to medium dark green.

As well as being the birthstone for August, Peridots are also the gemstone for the 16th Wedding anniversary

The Peridot is the National gem of Egypt. The Ancient Egyptians called the Peridot “the gem of the sun”.

They are associated with love, truth, faithfulness and loyalty, and also with fame, dignity, and protection

We’d like you to make a card using this lovely gemstone as your starting point. You could use the history, myths and qualities of the stone as your inspiration, and/or use the beautiful yellow-green colour in your creations.

For my card I used the ‘Gem of the Sun’  and olive/green colours for my inspiration.
Using the ‘You are my sunshine’ Stamp, which i coloured using Derwent watercolour pencils and backing papers from the ‘SWALK’ range by Crafters Companion.
