Going Green!

The challenge on the Heart2Heart Challenges blog this week is to create something that is favorite this is the standard-size card I came up with today! The stamps I used include the small hexagon stamps from Honeycomb C1537, a sentiment from the Buzz & Bumble WOTG stamp set G1054, and a cute little turtle from the Pun Fun stamp set C1505. I used a tiny scrap from the Chantilly paper pack X7163B and paper-piecing technique to make the shell on my turtle...and who can resist smiling at his fun wiggley eyes! Ink colors I used include Black, Pear, Sweet Leaf, and Topiary (with "retired" Parchment and Sweet Leaf markers). I hope you are inspired by my card to make something green of your own this week!
