Bugaboo Catch a Bug Challenge- "Green With Envy"

Bugaboo's challenge over at Catch a Bug Challenge blog this week is to create a card using "green" and to use the sketch that they provided.
this is my take on the sketch and an image that I won a month or so ago on Catch a Bug Challenge Blog.  I popped the image and added another heart to hopefully give it a look of a shamrock.  "I tried."

Paper: Stampin Up and paper from my stash.
Embossing folder from Cuttlebug
Rhinestones and Ribbon from Hobby Lobby
Copics: YG11, YG06 and C1

Hi everyone.  I just had a wonderful five days with Arlana.  We shopped for three of the days and crafted in Arlana's craft room the rest of the time. 

Arlana's DH is really into Dutch Oven cooking and so when I am there with Arlana I get to try out some wonderful dishes. There is something new and yummy everytime I visit.  They are probably some of the best meals I have all year. I know that Arlana will be posting more about their Dutch Oven cooking on her other blog at Sweet Things handmade. 
 You can find that link on my side bar. Arlana is also offering really fun kits to buy on her blog with some really fun projects.  I hope you will stop over and check it out.
