Going Green

I've gone through my box of card blanks and found a pile of envies this long skinny shape.  And as I have quite a selection of coloured SU! card I can cut up for card blanks - expect to see more!

You might recognise the little picture as it's the smaller version from the sheet I used a couple cards back, Mattie's Beautiful Flowers.  The pretty mat is from the die set Anya's Circles LR0327 and I fixed the design to the base with 3d foam.  The paper is a plain green and I've overstamped behind the image with a small diamond pattern, but in green so you can't see it!  The right hand side I've embossed with the Pearls folder DF3424 then inked and added sparkle to the bigger dots. I had a tiny piece of green Marrakesh trellis cut out in my bit box so added that down the side.  The ribbon is from the Victorian Christmas selection and is lovely and soft so easy to tie in a bow.  The text is cut twice with die LR0223 and I've added sparkle with Stickles to the top layer.  I've created a little floral corner and added tiny butterflies and little pearl strings to finish off.  Here's a close up of the flowers:

The dies I used here were all Marianne Design, of course:

mini butterflies CR1354
mini leaves CR1336
mini flowers CR1323
small poinsettia flowers LR0142

The Crafty Catz challenge is for ribbon and bling this week, so I can enter with them.  And at Crafty Cardmakers they are asking you to go green, so I'm with them too!

Thank you for stopping by to take a peek.  Have a lovely weekend and fingers crossed the sun keeps shining where you are!
