a bit 'o green

My most recent St Pat's Day card was made for the Only Green challenge over at paper crafters {Anonymous}, an online community I recently learned about thru checking blogs ... whose, I don't recall! I may have stretched this a bit 'cuz I used a bit of white and brown also, but most who've submitted cards so far used a bit more than JUST green.

I used scraps left over from the QuicKutz club meeting noted in an earlier post, and the tree design idea from PatL, an extremely talented cardmaker/scrapper who leads our club meetings. The tree die has a background of leaves (one that can easily be used as clouds also!) that I put aside and instead made falling shamrocks snipped from some St Pat's Day garland I'd picked up recently from Mike's (I have 43' left ... and NOT that many more cards to make ... LOL!). Again, strike another t'riffic idea up to PatL, who showed me a recent card she'd made that used a similar tree but with hearts (I added the falling shamrocks)! Think holidays with specific icons ... I don't think I'll be making falling bunnies, but you get the idea ...
