Magnolia-licious March Color Challenge - Green

Good morning everyone. It's two weeks from the last Magnolia-licious Challenge. I think many of you had fun joining us. Now is March and it is our sweet talented DT member Angela's turn to host challenges. This first challenge for this month Angela would like to challenge us to create a project using the color of green as much or as little with shamrocks if possible. My project today used Tilda Carrying Birthday Cake from the You Are So Special Collection from Magnolia-licious.

I am using this card for some challenges (please scroll down to the bottom of this post).

Here is a picture to inspire you for this challenge. Hope you can join us along and have fun using the green color. You can be one lucky winner receive a $25.00 gift certificate from Magnolia-licious.

Here is my finished card. Because I wanted some texture on this care, so I cute out a few scrap pieces of green cardstock and embossed them with different patterns.

Closer view on the image and I also wanted to show you the embossed pieces I added on this layout.

Oh how sweet your card is!
Look at all the different colours of green you used!
Tilda is coloured so perfectly :o)
You found some ribbon with shamrocks as well - so cute!
Really love all the different embossing you were able to put on it by using the small pieces.
Just a delight.

Cabio, your card is just so cute. I agree, green is a tough color to work with, but when you mix shades of green, it's really difficult. You pulled it off beautifully! Great coloring, too! Well done.

Love how you did this card, Cabio. We must have been thinking the same thoughts when we colored our images. The layout and design elements are fabulous and all the green is so fresh and spring like. I don't know what it's like in Victoria right now but here in Waco it about 85 degrees and we're running our AC!
