Simon Says ...... A Bit O' Green

Hello!  It's Wednesday again and that means another new challenge at Simon Says Stamp!

Simon Says Stamp Challenge Blog

It's the beginning of March, and most of us are getting antsy for Spring to arrive, and St. Patty's day is right around the corner, so our challenge theme this week is A Bit O' Green.  You can interpret this anyway you like.  The DT and our Guest Designer Dee are using Wplus9 products this week - they're not necessary to enter our challenge, but we'd love to see them if you have them......they have some wonderful stamp sets and dies! 

When I think of spring, I think of that special shade of lacy green that the leaves turn when they first appear - the world is in a green mist for just a short period during that time, and that's the feeling I tried for with my card:

SSS A  Bit o' Green, March 6

I knew I wanted to feature the Folk Art Florals dies to make my little scene, and I used as much green as I could.  The sentiment is from Hero Art's Right at Home set.

Again, we have a $50.00 gift voucher to the Simon Says Stamp Superstore to give away to a lucky random winner - will it be you this week?

  18. Hi Lin, that is such a sweet card!I really love all the green as it happens to be my favorite color. Spring hasn't started quite yet here in Missouri, we are still getting sleet and snow, but it melts the next day and gets to 60 degrees and then back to snow again lol,
    so everything is still brown and yellow.
    Thanks for playing along with the DCD!
