Great Impressions- Lucky You





Today we are introducing our March Challenge at Great Impressions---

GREEN

Boy was I almost stumped by this challenge-I mean green..........??? really???? I had myself all in a dither about this LOL....I am terrible at color challenges but I think I managed to make a fun green card after all! (And then I realized that your card does not have to be all green-just have green on it somewhere...) Duh.

I stamped this little harvest mouse stamp, cut off the pumpkin and handed him a clover!!! Ta-Dahhh!
You can see the fall card I made with this stamp here.  Nothing makes me happier than using stamps multiple times in creative ways. This stamp is one that can be so versatile...I can see substituting the pumpkin for an egg for easter, flowers for mothers day...the list goes on and on! Time to think outside the box!

I cut out the green base, clover and lucky me sentiment with my Silhouette-love that machine!

This Tuesday we are  having a Bunny Hop-Design Team Past and Present are playing along. 'Hop around' and say Hello and have a chance to win some prezzies!!!

Sue, a wonderful card! Love how you cut out the pumpkin and replaced it with the three leaf clover - great idea - and the shape of your card looks wonderful! Great job on the GREEN! "Lucky You" adds the perfect touch!
