Think Green

Since St. Patrick's Day is coming up, all the challenges seem to be GREEN themed.  I found it very difficult trying to work with just greens and neutrals, but I managed.  I decided to use the Green Challenge from Stampin' Royalty, the sketch challenge from Stamping 411, and the inspiration challenge from Hand Stamped Sentiments to create this card.  The card is not necessarily for St. Patty's day but it is green and springy. 

The inspiration challenge had a beautiful picture of a summer patio.
Doesn't this picture inspire you to create a warm and beautiful card?
It sure inspired me.  I also think I might recreate this scene in my backyard.

Here is my card:

I know So Saffron isn't green, but its still related to St. Patty's day (think GOLD).  The Vintage Vogue stamp set really reminds me of warm weather and good friends, which St. Patty's day is all about  (maybe not warm weather, but warm atmosphere).  
What does St. Patty's day mean to you?

I'm off to make more warm cards, possibly Easter ones.  
Have a great day stamping.
