Going Green

Friday at last, my friends, and what a week it has been! I'm really looking forward to a lazy weekend.... and some good weather. But I'll settle for a relaxing weekend. Here's a green birthday card I made for my friend. She works for our local recycling agency. You think she'll approve?  ;-)

Dabbling in CAS again. For the background I used Clearly Besotted's Leafy Accents and Versacolor Sage.  The central panel I used CB's Geometric Style and Versacolor Tropical Green and Bamboo. 

The sentiment is from WMS Compact Sentiments stamped with Memento Northern Pine. To finish, some sheer green ribbon and  3 green bling.

I liked the background stamping in the front and decided to take it inside too.

You'll find this card at these challenges:
