Phindy's Challenge - Going green

Good morning, folks! I am finally here with a card!

The challenge at Phindys is to go green with your project - however you choose to interpret it. I have green featuring as a prominent colour but I also decided to go with a bit more earthy and rustic look. Maybe it even worked - you decide!

The image is one of Phindys ultra cute Flower Fairies. I thought that sentiment from Penny Black was very fitting!!!

I got those lovely Prima Sprites from Absolutely Amazingly Wonderful And Smashingly Generous Friend Tara. Thanks - mwah!! All there was left to do was to stick on some buttons and twine. Glue guns ROCK!!!

The papers are all from DCWV stack, I roughed them up with a trusty distressing tool - small but mighty it is!

Unfortunately I have lost the list of Copic colours - sorry!

I'd love to enter the following challenges:
Fab 'n' Funky - anything goes
Paper Take Weekly - sketch
Bunny Zoe's Crafts - vintage
Cowgirl's Sunday Challenge  - anything goes
Stamptacular Sunday - distress it
Crafty Emma - flowers
By the Cute And Girly - Indian Summer
Southern Girls (2 weeks) - anything goes
Copic Creations - folds


Thanks for looking and happy crafting!
Hugs

It works, Annika! Lovely. :-) I love what you did with the tag you stamped on , made out of a scrap of matching designer paper. I think I'll copy that sometime.
