GREEN GREEN lots of green...

That is todays Challenge at Speedy Fox and Friends today! 
Green is one of my favorite colors but I couldnt seem to get the ole mojo
going! Not having my sewing machine is a real pain, the edges don't seem finished 
without some stitiching on them! I have used several of the images from the
 Snowflakes Set. I embossed them them cut them out to layer. The small one is
 sandwiched between two Martha Stewart punched pieces. A bit of glitter and a 
jewel to add a tad of sparkle. The sentiment is from the Create With Pine Boughs Set.
Hope you will join us for this weeks color challenge

Our Sponsor is Sami Stamps Shop and I have used t he Bird On A Branch image
. I really like this image because its so versatile. I have colored it with a little pencil then
 added some chalk to the background to look a bit stormy and some "snow".
 A Spellbinder Scalloped Square was used to cut the mat. The background is a
 from a Winter Stack. The Snowflakes were cut with Marvy and Martha Stewart 
punches using a combo of vellum and cardstock.
 Since my machine croaked no stitching on this one! A little glitter 
added and voila . My teammates have made some beautiful cards, so stop by

a red Bazill paper. The fun polka dot frame and oval is from Hero Arts.
 One of the  many treasures my sweet friend Martha sent me for my Birthday.
 The Noel sentiment is from the  Poinsettia Blooms Set.
The tiny holly is from the Christmas Selection Set that has a myriad 
of Christmas stamps. The base is from a Christmas Stack. I tried
 to stitch it on but didnt do to well, afraid my machine is toast!!
The snowflake is a very pretty die but Im clueless whose it is,

to shimmer it up a bit and cant have
 Christmas without bells so one in the center.   
Such an easy Challenge so stop over and join the fun this week.
