Looking sharp in Green

Hi there,
 It is time for this week's challenge with the CCEE stampers team.

Wow, we're three weeks into March already.....and St. Patrick's Day is on the horizon.  This week, let's make a St. Patrick's Day card.....or.....use the color green on your card!  Not all of us can use a St. Patrick's Day card, but green is a wonderful color with endless possibilities!

Wow I love anything green, that seemed to be true with this photo of my card today. It didn't matter which angle or how many times, I took the photo the light just seemed to bounce green off the background, so I am sorry for the poor quality of this photo.

I finally had the chance to play with this Sizzix Cactus card die, it was super easy to use. I created a 3d cactus with the center panel, that you could pop out and use as a book mark.

I used the Concord & 9th stuck on you stamps set for my sentiment and basket. I the card seemed to stay open to wide for my liking so I made a belly band for the bottom.

Here is my photo ready for postage, I am much happier with the truer colours in these photos.

Don't forget to check out the CCEE Stampers blog to see the rest of the creations the CCEE Stampers have created this week. You can also see more details of their creations on their individual blogs.
