It's Not Easy Being Green...

Welcome to my small part of the March Use Your Stash blog hop! This month, our theme is "It's not easy being green". It reminds me of Kermit the Frog sitting by a pond singing in one of the Muppet movies!

If you got here from Wendy's blog, you are on the right track, but if you get lost, just return to Terry's blog where you will find the list of hoppers.

I LOVE GREEN! It reminds me of hot summer days and warm nights sitting on the deck watching the stars. So when I saw this month's theme was GREEN, I was so there! Then when I actually started, I thought it was WAY too much green and it didn't really appeal to me. So I went looking through my stash and found the perfect compliment!

I made a set of cards using four White Daisy card bases (4.25" X 5.5"), the Paper Fundamentals Adventure Assortment (Z2032) and some small scraps of Chantilly. 

I found two sets of the Lucy Complements we had a few years ago. These are rub-ons in these pretty pinks, greens and yellows. I LOVE them and they added just the right contrast to the green! I also used the Silver Shimmer Trim (Z1799) on one card and some contraband pearl trim I had in my ribbon stash on another.

I also added some of our Colour Ready Ribbon. Not sure I like the Happy Birthday stamped directly on the green card and may still change it.

That's my project for this month. I hope it has whetted your creative juices, and I welcome your comments. 

From here, head on over to Darlene's blog for some more great artwork!
