St. Patrick's Day

Hi, it's Jenny posting today with a card for this week's Going Green challenge. The challenge is a simple one - use only shades of green and neutrals on your card. I know I'm a little late for St. Patrick's Day, but I hope you enjoyed the day.

I cut the Couture Creations Tied Together die with Kraft card stock, and adhered it to a green polka dot paper from the Vintage Bliss paper pad. I popped the designer paper up with Joy Crafts Foam Pads for dimension.

I cut the large flowers from Heartfelt Creations Botanical Wings die, using a piece of green dotted paper from my stash. Yellow distress ink was added to the edges using a Mini Ink Blending Tool. The petals were shaped with tools and molding mat from my Paper Shapers Tool Kit.  After assembly I glued green rimmed rhinestones from my stash to the centers.

The Cheery Lynn Designs Cutie Fringe IV flowers are wonderful as accent flowers, and roll so easily with the Rolling Tool from the Paper Blossoms Tool Kits. Before rolling, I colored the fringe flowers using a green spray mist from my stash for sparkle.

The sentiment is from an old stamp from my stash.  I centered the Spellbinders Labels Eighteen die around the words before cutting. Using the die as a stencil ,I then sponged peeled paint distress ink over the sentiment with my blending tool.

Last, I arranged the flowers and adhered them with Joy Crafts Foam Pads to the card front. I added some green leaves and mini flourishes from dies in my stash to complete the arrangement.

I hope you like the result and can join us this week for a chance to win a great prize!
