Merry Monday Shades of Green

It's Merry Monday time again.


 The amazing LeAnne is our hostess this week.

I love this picture!

I pulled out my NBUS Papertrey Ink Polka Dot Parade #9
stamps and die.

The sentiment is a NBUS too.
It's from Verve.

For the background I used the partial embossing.

The bow is made from crochet thread
dragged through Gesso.

is looking for die cuts.
This die set is from Papertrey Ink.

Pixie's Snippet Playground
is always open for play when we use snippets on our cards.
The tree is made from snippets.
What a great way to us up some of those narrow pieces!

I hope you'll pull out your greens 
and join us at Merry Monday this week.

And be sure to go over there and check out all the Design Team cards.
WOW!

Thanks for stopping by.

Enjoy!

GORGEOUS Bonnie! Love the die set you used, which reminds me I have one a teensy bit similar and would never have thought to use different papers - really clever.
