Green, Green, Green

Hello my blog land friends!  I hope everyone is having a wonderful week so far.  My kiddies are on spring break from school this week, so it has been a mad house at home.  Big thank you to everyone who commented on the "Stick Pin Tutorial".  I do hope you This week over at the Papercraft Star our challenges is to use the color green in your card.  We have a wonderful inspiration photo for you to use if you choose.

 For me the color green and me are NOT friends.  I don't really care for this color and always have found it hard to use it either in quilts, or my papercrafts.  Here's what I came up with.

I started with a buttercream card base and added papers from Graphic 45.  I took inspiration from the photo and used a fairy image in a green setting.  I added a bit of stickles to the fairy wings and butterfly wings.  I had a few little pieces of scrap papers and matted them to some artichoke cardstock.  A few flowers in the corner and that finishes my card.  I hope you get a chance to play along this week.  For more inspiration please visit the other design team members.
