Fussy & Fancy Friday Challenge - Green

Now... when you see this card, you'll be hard pressed to understand how it goes with our challenge theme this week.  Well... it's just a silly little story which I'll get to soon.  First, let's take a look at what I came up with.

Hmmmmm... not much green, is there?  OK... later with that.  You've probably seen all the wonderful Sweet Pea Stamps showing up in all the on-line galleries.  Well... this is one of them.  They are our sponsor this week and very generously supplied some of the DT members with stamps from their ching-chou kuik's Fantasy Art Collection.  I was lucky enough to end up with this stamp called Blue Eye Fairy.  Isn't she just simply wonderful???  And so fabulous to work up into a card.

Well... you've probably guessed by now why there's so much blue in this card and not so much green.  I was so intent on making everything bring out her blue eyes, I kinda lost track of the challenge!!!  hahaha!!  Can you believe that one?  I really should have worked her into a green eyed fairy.  Then it would have been perfect!!

I used the sketch challenge over at Inspirational Card Sketches.  It was perfect for the card I wanted to make with this stamp.  I appreciate your help ladies!!

Thanks for dropping by today.  Hope to see you again very soon.  Please come and join us this week at Fussy & Fancy Friday Challenge and remember... GREEN!!!  : )
