Angel Blog Hop: Go GREEN!

Our theme for the Blog Hop for Angels of The Angel Company this month is GO GREEN. We could do St. Pat's day, use the color green or recycle/repurpose an item.

My post includes a card that was inspired by fellow Angel Heather for her weekly sketch. You can see hers here and notice how I adapted it.


Mine uses 2 shades from the Bazzill Mono Greens Cardstock as well as Catelynn paper and white ultrasmooth. I used a Scor-Bug with the Scor-Pal to get great texture. I distressed the edges of the patterned paper with scissors (I miss our retired distressor!), stamped the image from Dear Friend in Burnt Umber Palette ink and colored with Skin Tone Pencils, Prismacolor pencils and oderless mineral spirits. The button is from Lemonade Blossoms and Buttons, tied with Tan Scrapper's Floss.

This card was one of the projects from my One SpecTACular Night on Feb. 5. We had 13 gals there, ready to create, eat and win prizes. It was lots of fun and Connie won the big prize--a $35 shopping spree! She says she never wings--but not any more! ;-)

Now be sure to visit all the other Angels' blogs so you can GO GREEN!
