It's Not Easy Bein' Green


Yes, it's really green, isn't it? But for St. Patrick's Day, it's perfect! Michelle from Stamper's Dream sent me this adorable image last month and I finally found the opportunity to color it and try out this style! I also chose to do the Stamper's Dream monthly challenge. This month it is to make a monochromatic card with three different shades of the same color family.

I didn't intend on using all greens, but the first thing I colored was the flower and made it a four-leaf clover, and then I knew if I was going to use this darling image, it had to be greens!

You can find Lily (SPRINGTIME CLEAR STAMP by Rachelle Ann Miller from Stampavie) HERE. It's a darling stamp, and the clover can certainly be a flower on another day!
My designer paper is by Close To My Heart, flowers are by The Paper Studio, branch punch by Martha Stewart, photo corner punch by Stampin' Up! The large eyelet in the corner is by Memory Keepers. Although it doesn't show in the picture, the little butterfly and stars have Crystal Stickles on them.

Thank you, Michelle, for such a fun image to work with!

Thanks for coming by today!
