A Bit of Green--Mo's Digital Pencil Challenge

The awesomely talented Pat is our hostess this week for the Mo's Digital Pencil Challenge.  Pat has chosen the task to use green somewhere on our card.  It can be Irish or just something you added that was green.  Here is what I created:

I thought this Party Girl image would be fun for a Cheers card.  She is dressed for the St. Patrick's Day celebration at the local pub, tavern, or bar depending on your local term. 
I decided,  so the green wasn't so over powering,  I would add some nice pink/green pretty spring dp I got during a snow storm, LOL  The image was cutout with a spellbinder die and colored with copic markers and sponged with distress dusty rose ink.  I used a white bubble embossed panel bordered in green and layered on a scallop edge panel  to go behind the main image.  The ribbon treatment was very simple just hand pleated three folds and held it with a green brad.  The pretty pink and green flower stem is from the Pagoda cartridge for my cricut expression. I layered several pink flowers with a large green/gold center,  A Cheers Sentiment stamped on vellum and my card is complete.

Be sure to stop by the Challenge blog and see what the rest of the DT has created. I know you will be impressed, I always am...

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.
