GLORIOUS Greens!

LOVE me some Gingersnap Challenges (they're open for ever so long--it's awesome)! And they've got an AMAZING color challenge going on right now: Glorious Greens!!! I'm not really a monochromatic crafter, but I LOVE when I get to leave my comfort zone to create, so this is fabulous!

I was also browsing over at the Stampalot challenge (monthly--it's so nice!) and they've asked us to use the theme "In the Garden." SO, you know what I thought? OF COURSE YOU DO!!! Combine these two to create an amazing card! So I did...at least I think it's amazing! We'll see what you think.

Here's my card~

Some details~




So, is it glorious and green enough? I had so much fun using many techniques to create this! The middle "flower" is a paper punched and created flower with other punched shapes layered onto it. SO easy and such a neat handmade touch! I used patterned paper to cut out the ferns on the background and the polka dot panel has green embossing around the edge. I wanted it to look organic. I think it does! It looks like it will just keep growing! :)

I hope you like this as much as I do, and I hope you join in the fun at these two challenges--I LOVE seeing what others come up with!!! Happy stamping! :)

I am soooo behind on looking at your blog. I've been working on the Virtual Card Making Party at Operation Write Home.

My goodness Mynnette, this card is amazing! Truly!! I love the green on green but the polka dots and the ferns, embossing and layers are all fantastic!
