Shades of Green Card ~ Color Dare #435

With St. Patrick's Day soon to come our Design Team at Color My Herat Color Dare is hosting a Shades of Green challenge. Make any paper craft you like using shades of green plus ONE color of your choice. Black, White, Neutrals and Metallics are FREE, too. When you're ready click the link in the post on our home page to join the challenge! 

I'm also sharing this card with the Double Trouble Challenge of using green.

For this challenge I got out my watercolors paints, watercolor paper and got busy making a shades of green background. Using the Thin Cut Die I created this pretty look and backed it on Gold Foil Paper. I placed a small sentiment layer and backed it with some green cardstock wrapped with gold thread. My Plus one color is pink and it shows in the small flower. Golden Rod Stickles are in the centers of the various flowers.
