One Stitch at a Time Challenge 153

This week at One Stitch at a Time, we're (sort of) celebrating Spring with our theme of 'Go Green'! That can be literal (with green colours) or you can recycle.

Our sponsor is

See the challenge blog for details.

I had a image from Barbara Jensen to work with this week, and I chose a cute girl who goes by the name of Lolly Poppy. And I chose to use the colour green since I didn't have anything handy to recycle ...


I added the sentiment in Photoshop Elements before printing, then coloured with a mix of Promarkers and Flexmarkers. I cut the image and matt using a Sizzix Framelets die set. The background was debossed using a Crafter's Companion embossing folder. (Yes, it was an accident - but I liked the effect so it stayed ...) The card is Papermania pearlescent, and I've finished using a new Sizzix Thinlits border die and some sticky gems.

I hope you can join us this week.

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

love the card I've never seen green hair except when my DD was very small but her colouring wasn't a patch on yours.

I think your debossing has worked better than embossing, it has made your die cut border stand out so well. This is a cute image and you have made a fab card with it.

Love Mandy xxx
