Fairy Fun Fridays week 9 - green



At Fairy Fun Fridays this week, the challenge is to include some green in your creations - this can be a card for St Patrick's Day if you like, but doesn't have to be. I hope you'll find time to join in with us :o)

I've used this cute Little Miss Mousey image, coloured with promarkers. I then cut the image and a scalloped oval using nesties, and experimented with a fab little tutorial that you can see here - how to make your MS border punches even more useful! The blue doily edge around my image was made using an ordinary MS doily punch, and the tutorial's very simple if you fancy having a go yourself! I've used downloaded papers from Sweet Shoppe Designs, coredinations cardstock, Green Tara flowers, button from my stash and the little butterflies are the punched out bits from the MS butterfly border punch.

I'm also entering my card for the following challenges:
