Going Green

This week Jitterbuggin' focuses on pastels for their challenge.  I don't use pastels very often, so it really was fun to go through my paper and think about what colors I wanted to use.  In addition the recipe for the challenge called for the use of their sketch, a button and a Cricut cut sentiment. 

I decided to go with a light green and create a thank you card.  I cut the flower out in six different sizes using my Design Studio software and Walk In My Garden cartridge.   After they were cut out I embossed them with various Cuddlebug folders.  I distressed the edges with light green ink and add a button to the center.  I have to say, I LOVE buttons.  I have mine all sorted out my color and I have so much fun "shopping" for just the right one!  I used a Fiskars border punch to cut out some coordinating green paper that was distressed with just a hint of pastel blue ink.  I added a shear ribbon and some gems to create my "lines" in the sketch. I stamped the white card with some great swirls and distressed the edges of the card with light green ink. Finally, I added my sentiment to the bottom, cut out from the George and Basic Shapes cartridge. There you have it, a pastel green card with a button in the middle and "thanks" written below.
