Just Add Green

I have  a lovely friend who's birthday is on St Patrick's Day.... and here is her card for this year - she turns a wonderful milestone of 50!  In honour of St Patrick, I have kept to a very Green theme.

The gift envelope uses some Lucky Limeade Patterns Paper, and is embellished with Everything Eleanor - this cute little design I have copied from our Demonstrator magazine we receive regularly.

Her card is made with Gumball Green with a Certainly Celery Flower embellishment.  I have stamped on a paper doily, and also used some silver shimmer and the big shot for the 50.  In the background is a lovely stamp from Everything Eleanor again.

Her little gift is some tags - cut with the Two Tags die and the Big Shot and stamped with the Spring Sampler stamp set.

 This little project fits perfectly into the challenge at Just Add Ink which is to Just Add Green for St Patrick's Day.
