It's Not Easy Being Green... Timeless Tuesday

Well, that's that Kermit would say. :)  It hasn't been "easy" around here lately as my boys both came down with Strep two different times, so there has been repeat DR visits and much cleaning! I have been praying (hard) that I will not get it and that this is the end for sick days! Blah...

It's Tuesday and I am excited to be your hostess this week over at the Timeless Tuesday Challenge Blog.  My challenge for you is to incorporate the color green into your project.  

For my card, I used Old Fashion Florals  colored in with Copics and cut out using my oval nesties.  These beautiful flowers I'm sure, are not normally green, but I think it works.  :)

I sponged lightly around the embossed oval with some Distress Inks before popping it up over some dp from October Afternoon.  The dp is then layered over a paper doily and some cotton chevron trim.  Here are the Copic Collections used:

The sentiment is from Inside & Out- Happy.  'Happy' was stamped and cut out before popping it up, while St. Patty's Day is stamped directly onto the layer, finished with some self adhesive rhinestones from Zva Creative.  I used some sheer ribbon for the bow with an added floral rhinestone bunch for the center. 

Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek! Be sure to see what wonderful creations the Timeless Tuesday Team have made! Have a great day...


  1. Oh my goodness is that ever PRETTY!! Love the doily with that dark green paper and ribbon....everything works together so beautifully!

  2. This is gorgeous, Deborah! I love the double ovals and how you shaded the larger one. Everything just pops against the kraft cardstock! I hope your boys are well soon and that you stay healthy!

  3. This is so beautiful Deborah!! I love your coloring and the green is just popped out from the card! Super job!

  4. This is beautiful! Love the brown and green together. Hope your family is all well. :)
