CCCB11 Shades of Green

The theme for this week's City Crafter Challenge 11 is to use shades of green.
Here is my try...
I made a very simple card using this pretty textured green and ivory patterned card stock from JoAnn's called Mint Green Porcelain (no brand name on the back?)for the card front and parts of a couple of the flowers and the sentiment label.
The flower punches are Martha Stewart and I layered the two different sizes...easy!
I made a border of laces and ruched ribbon that I had in my stash and sewed the top edge of the border with the sewing machine.

I had sewn the perimeter of the two card stock fronts together with the old sewing machine previous.
The SU! sentiment was stamped and cut out as was the teeny Inkadinkado bird cage. I added some tiny green rhinestones that I cut apart from a fancy rhinestone cluster and added these to the birdcage.

I popped the flowers, sentiment and birdcage on foam and placed on the card front.
That's pretty much it! I love how it turned out!
Great challenge!
Have a great Friday. It's raining here in Austin and will be raining for the whole weekend they are saying...
I am sure there will be some sort of break in the weather to do some grilling. Hope it is warm and sunny for you to celebrate the holiday weekend!
