ABC's Challenge

Happy New Year! What a great way to start out the new year with a challenge from ABC! This is a fun one. We are on the letter "G" so the challenge is "Go Green". You can use the color green or you can recycle! How fun is that? For my card I used an image from Krista Smith...one of my favorites. I used scraps from my scrap box, all the color green. I used some new C.C. dies for the flowers and leaves and 'recycled' my rhinestone brads. I also added some dry wall tape for  texture...is that recycling? LOL! I used a MS punch for my lace edging. A pink ribbon finishes off my card. Hop on over to ABC's Challenge for a chance to win some great prizes!
I am entering this card in the following challenges:

My Song:
The old home town looks the same as I step down from the train,
and there to meet me is my Mama and Papa.
Down the road I look and there runs Mary hair of gold and lips like cherries.
It's good to touch the green, green grass of home.

I wanted to pop around and say Hi! You've done a wonderful job coloring up this image. Love the great depth you've created with the image and especially with the folds in her dress. I hope you have a happy, healthy and prosperous New Year.
