Lots of Green at Simply Create Too

The month of March is well on it's way and this month is notorious for shamrocks, leprechauns and the color green. Although St. Patrick's Day is not celebrated by everyone, we would love to see Lots of Green in your crafty creations for the challenge at Simply Create Too. The challenge is open for a month, so you have until March 31st to link your creation. Click here to enter the challenge and for all the lovely green inspiration from the design team.

When deciding on the occasion for this card I considered making a St. Patrick's Day card because I do mail a few. However, I send a lot more Easter cards and really wanted to use the hatching chick image by Angie's Stamps. The image was colored with Copic markers and then die cut with a stitched circle die by My Favorite Things. After searching through patterned papers I decided on the small green floral paper by American Crafts from their Heartland Farm collection. To add some contrast I used some Garden Green patterned paper by Stampin' Up! accented with a white scalloped die cut edgelit. The Easter Wishes sentiment is by Studio G and has been in my stash for many years. To finish off the card I added a paper flower with leaves cut with a Cricut machine and a bitty butterfly from the Papillon Potpourri stamp set by Stampin' Up! accented with three small pearls. That's it! Thanks for stopping by and I hope to see your creation in the gallery at Simply Create Too.
