Willow in Green

The challenge this week on Whiff of Joy is to create a green card. It would have worked great for St. Pats day but lucky me...I have a friend loves green so this is her Easter card. It was fun finding a way to use greens and still make an OK card. I used 5 papers, 2 of which were reversible. The papers were from Provo Craft and SU. The embellishments were so important on this card. The Prisma Flowers look perfect on the corners. I cut out a small circle matching the main color to match it all. The green glass flowers are from the $ store and work perfectly on this card...gotta love the price eh!

I took the plain green paper and ran it through the cuttlebug with the circles embossing folder and cut it with the largest scalloped circle nestibility. I love how embossing changes a plain paper. I also used the oval nestibility on the SU paper and attach the Kneeling Willow to this. I colored Willow with my markers using Light Aqua on the dress and Deco Pink on the Apron. The hair is a mix of Sienna Brown and Goldenrod. I love the ribbon. It is Classic Traditions Satin ribbon and it makes beautiful bows. I left the ends loose and I like the effect. It shows the softness of the ribbon.I used the reverse side of the SU paper to create the oval and the Harmony Rectangular stamp for the Happy Easter stamped in Pretty in Pink. I also cuttlebugged the green paper again for the large inside panel.
Today it looks like Spring is almost here. The temperature is going to 8 C today and and the snow is melting. Soon there will be flowers. ..hope, hope, hope. I love snow in the winter but I think enough is enough...time for Spring. Time to get everybody up for work and school so I will be back later. Have a wonderful Almost Spring day.
