March's birthstone : Aquamarine

Thanks to everyone who warmed us up with their sunny cards last week. What a fabulous array!

We have arrived at the start of another month which means it is a colour theme based on the birthstone of the month -

Aquamarine.
Its an interesting stone as it comes in various colours - aquamarines come in sea blue; sky blue; blue green and sea green which is a lovely broad sea/sky palette. The crystal structure is hexagonal. It is also associated with the properties of faithfulness, courage and friendship.

Don’t forget to leave us a link so we can come and see your creations.
Here are a few examples from the team to help get your creative juices flowing.
