Green Monochrome Madness

Wahoo for the weekend! That means a new challenge over at One Stop Crafts. This week Shelly challenged the Design Team to go monochorme with the option of ribbon. Bugaboo is our sponsor and gave the team super cute images to play with. We'd love to have you join in the monochrome madness and have the chance to win Bugaboo images. Here's the inspiration for my creation and my take on the challenge. I was about to go with a blue theme (kind of my go to thought with a rainy day, get well theme) but I pushed myself to use green; a color I seldom choose. I was very pleased with the result; I hope you are inspired!

Sketch Inspiration ~ 365Cards Day 40 ~ Sunday Sketch

365 Cards Day 71 ~ The Three G’s: Green, Grass, Glitter The green is obvious, I added a patch of grass for my bear to stand on, and added glitter as accents.
MyTime to Craft Challenge #179 ~ Happy Healing I thought it was fun to create a 'green' card for someone feeling a bit green around the gills!

My Creation
Each of the layers is popped up so the card is almost 3D in real life!
Image Detail
I wanted to add sheen to the ubmrella and boots, but couldn't find my crystal effects. But, right next to me was a bottle of clear nail polish. It worked great to slick things up. I used stickles and glitter stickers to add some extra shine. I free handed polka dots on the boots.
