Easy Being Green

Maybe....anyway, I made this card quickly, CASing it from my collection of photos cut from various craft magazines, and placed in a journal (number 4) - to get into the journal, the card has to either have a good colour combo, a good design idea or a sentiment/image combo that attracts me.  This card fits the first two.  AND it's green.



It's dark and its raining outside, so I rigged up a light box thingy out of a shoe box to take this photo and get the correct colours. SU card of course, Vanilla, Mellow Moss and Cherry Cobbler.  The MM card is dry embossed with a folder from Cuttlebug. The DP is part of a freebie from the magazine Simply Cards, and is sitting in my stash because it's good quality paper and pretty!

The oval punch from SU is mounted in the middle of a scalloped oval nestability, embossed, and the ribbon is SU Certainly Celery.  Three bits of Kaiser bling and I smooched the edges of everything with Cherry Cobbler ink. The sentiment is a rub-on. 

I will enter this in the following challenges:

Craft Your Passion - Anything Goes
Die Cut Dreams - a recipe: three shapes (rectangle, oval and scalloped oval), two colours (green and red) and one ribbon.
