It's Easy Being Green

Dear Ones~
Well, it's been a few days since I posted anything, but I have been busy at work creating some new things. This card is green.....all green....and I don't really love it. I love the green part, just not the card itself. But there you just are and that's all I have to say about that. We all have our ugly card moments, lol.

I wanted to use this sketch from the My Favorite Things Sketch Challenge:

I also wanted to enter this Double "D" Photo Challenge:
So here's my card, don't judge:
 As you can see, the Double "D" Challenge is to make a green card with just a pop of red. I have been so in love with the W Plus 9 Happy Birds Stamp set, these images just make me smile. So I had to use them again on this card. I made my own tag, embossed with a Paper Studio Embossing Folder and sponged with Distress Inks. Oh, and how do you like the new Vuvo Crystal Drops? I just got a bunch of colors; here I used the bright green. They take the place of enamel dots, you use them like Liquid Pearls, and they are a dream!! I LOVE them!!!!

Here are the Ingredients:
GKD Fresh Asparagus and Ivory Card Stock
Paper Studios Embossing Folder, sorry, don't know the name
Recollections Habitat Patterned Paper
W Plus 9 Happy Birds Stamp Set & Companion Dies
Tim Holtz Scribbles and Splat Die
Distress Inks
Cheery Lynn Flourish Die
Vuvo Crystal Drops
Enamel Accents
White Gel Pen & Stickles

I will be entering this card in the following challenges:

Double "D" Challenges - Feeling Green
Scrapy Land - Anything Goes with a Die
Simon Says Monday - Take a Leap into the Unknown 
                                (my new Crystal Drops)
