Green, Glorious Green

At Gingersnap Creations the current color challenge is glorious greens. Although the weather in Chicago hasn't been too bad this winter (yet), I'm ready for green and flowers. That said, I enjoyed making this card. It's amazing how many shades of green there are.
I used the sketch challenge at the City Crafter Challenge blog for my card layout. My background layer is actually the Japanese Lace and Flourish die cut from Cheery Lynn and the Cheery Lynn Blog Challenge is dry embossing. The lighter green panel is dry embossed using a Sizzix folder and highlighted with meadow green ink (Adirondack). My image is a digital stamp from Cornish Heritage Farms (a freebie) which I painted using Creative Inspirations Paints. Ah, the promise of spring!
