Papercraft Star #136-Green

We are having a GREEN Challenge this week at Papercraft Star.  I went green with a Spring/Summer card.  It is still a few months away from spring here in Wyoming....but at least I can stamp green!  Here is a look at the inspiration photo, which is use if you choose..

My card is based on the sketch this week at Mojo Monday, love all of the layers! I rotated the sketch to fit my stamp design.

My main panel includes only one stamped image....I sponged in the background to complete my spring scene.  My clouds were created with the help of a scallop border die.  The grass border is sponged on with the help of an icicle die turned upside down.

Added in a few more layers to highlight my sentiment.

I kept the inside plain for now.  I like the flexibility of being able to use my cards for note cards or to add a stamped sentiment at a later date.
