Going Green

Well, my original intention for this card was to use a cute St. Patrick's Day image.  However, my printer decided to run out of ink so that idea went out the window.  Instead I created this card using lots of green patterned paper, some ephemera, flowers, ribbon, and gold twine as an accent.
Once I had the patterned papers together, I ran some gold ribbon trim along the top and bottom to create borders around the green polka dot paper.  I used a die-cut for the sentiment which was cut from gold cardstock.  I used some gold ephemera flowers, journalling spot with gold corner accent, and then toed a big fluffy bow from pink seam binding, and then placed some gold twine with a gold button in the center of the bow.  I really like the green all the gold accents.

I will be linking up this card in some fun challenges.  Thanks so much for stopping by to take a quick peek at my card.  I always appreciate your visits and comments.
