Best Wishes in Green

Hello again, dear friends. I'm back with another card to show you. This is a challenge card because I don't actually have anyone for any occasion in mind... not something I do often. Not complaining, it's actually good to have a few any occasion cards in hand. This "ambiguous" card in in green, thanks to the St Paddy's day challenges. But I guess it'll work as a healthy spring card. I'm using the sketch provided by Sweet Stop Sketch challenge #150 with a green spin.

I've used 2 paper lines here: the dots and stripes are by Crafts Too and the small floral paper is a scrap piece from the "Travel Light" pack by WRMK.
I cut a small piece of bright green CS with Spellbinders Square Fleur-de-Lis and sponged it with TH's Peeled Paint. Then I cut some white CS with the border die from Spellbinders Floral Doily Accents set and did some stencilling, again with TH's Peeled Paint.
The flower stamp is by Papermania and I stamped it with TH's Peeled Paint. The sentiment, also by Papermania, was sent to the Memento Tuxedo Black ink pad and later cut with Spellbinders Reverse Wonky Rectangles die.  Finally, to make the flowers pop, I dotted the centers with a white gel pen. As you can see, foam pads were called into action too!
I kept the inside simple. A strip of the floral paper, green scallop edge and that big blue daisy (or what ever flower that is).
Green is the theme over at Use It Tuesday Challenge #27 and Sweet Stampin Challenge. And since its Dots and Stripes week over at Dutch Dare Cards challenge #156, you'll find my card there too. Check out these sites and Make It Monday #81 for some truly fab works of art.

That's all from me today. Thanks for swinging by for a visit. Tomorrow is the start of another week, hope it will be a great one for you.
