Green Easter

Hello blog-friends. Today I got busy with the camera at sunrise. Oh yes I did! Luckily the day started bright and sunny.This is going to be a hurried post, sorry. Got a gazillion things to do today... Anywho, enough idle chit-chat let's get on with the card. It's based on the Sunday Stamp & Sketch #97 - chock full of layers, just the thing for this week's Sweet Stampin' Challenge. Since I'm going all green, this card will do nicely over at DYSU Challenge #62 Going Green, Whimsical Wednesday Challenge #45, Pile It One Challenge 11. And look, just sentiment and perfect for Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge #176. Finally (yes, I hear you sigh!) it's time for the card:

The DPs are from Papermania Capsule Collection by Tina Higgins in "Verde". This pack has some lovely papers is various shades of green.

The pack has a nice range of designs too - damask, paisley, stripes, dots, plaid, gingham. A versatile collection.

 The greeting is from Waltzing Mouse Stamps "Say It Loud" set, stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black. Those embellishments you see were not part of the original plan. A last minute rescue remedy to hide a boo-boo! 

I used Spellbinders Labels 13 for the greeting, and did a little sponging with TH's Peeled Paint. A green ribbon in a simple knot holds it all in place.

Nothing fancy on the inside - a strip of the same DP and a punched border.

Hope you enjoyed this post. A simple card. Thanks for visting and I'll see you soon with another little something ;-)
