Going Green ......

Thought I would 'Go Green' with this card, but neither green in the environmental way nor with envy either.  No, green as in the colour Green instead !

I diecut some paper flowers from an old book (Tattered Florals TH) on the Sizzix.  They were then sprayed with Dylusions ink sprays and allowed to dry.  I cut a piece of white card and applied 3 of the flowers onto the card with Mod Podge glossy paper medium and a brush and allowed to dry.  The card was then trimmed and the remaining white areas treated with peeled paint Distress ink.  Where the Mod Podge hadn't sealed the card the ink soaked into the porous paper and produced a shaded background which I liked.

I then added a length of lime grosgrain ribbon and a diamante ribbon slider and applied the ribbon on red-line double sided tape.

Three fabric flowers were added for dimension over the paper flowers and were secured with green pearl brads in the flower centres.

The plate was matted twice. First on some printed paper and second onto gold mirri board before being stuck onto the white card blank.

Finishing touch was to add the round green sentiment saying 'Thankyou'.

This card meets the requirements of the Artful Times Challenge No. 66 whose theme is 'Green'.  So why not hop over there and enter one of your green creations too.
