Green, green and more green

Hi - I'm back today with a card I did last night.  I saw this lime green/black paper at Paper Pickle this week, and just knew I had to have  it.  Wasn't sure what I was going to do with it until I started playing around.  So a bit of embossing, distress inks, die cuts it all came together.

The image I used is called solid flowery weeds.

I embossed the flowery weed on a manilla tag using black embossing powder.  Next I sponged TH Distress inks - mustard seed, peeled paint, crushed olive, shabby shutters, pumice stone and walnut stain.  Doily was cut out using a Cheery Lynn Die.  I used a happy birthday sentiment from Stamping Bella (sorry can't seem to find it to link it up).  For my ribbon, I used some funky lime green lacy ribbon- had this for so long, finally had a chance to use it!

See that little bird on my tag, well these are small wood veneer die cuts.  I sponged some peeled paint and then a bit of walnut stain and the adhered it using a glue dot. Just a nice little addition to my card.
These die cuts are by Studio Calico.  I also bought a pkg of the butterflies as well.

Well, that does it for today.  Thanks for coming by.  Enjoy your weekend!
