Good morning!  It’s the first Monday of March, so that means it’s time for a new challenge at Cards in Envy.  This fortnight we’re encouraging our challenge participants to get in a springtime mood and Think Green!  Cards for this challenge should be A2 sized, be less than 1/4″ thick, and use green as the dominant color.

I started out making a monochromatic card, using several different green patterned papers… and wasn’t very happy with it.  So I tried again, using the patterned papers differently… and hated that card even more than the first one.  And I didn’t want to make a Christmas card – that’s what the 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown challenges are for! 😉  So I pulled out some patterned paper that’s mostly green but has a few other colors.  This scrap of apple print paper was just the right size to fit into the layout for the current CAS(E) this Sketch! challenge.  The red apple at the bottom of the card was stamped on a scrap of white cardstock, colored with Copics, and fussy cut.  I also stamped the apple on the green front panel for the card.  That way when I cut it from the white, I could omit the leaf and stem because trying to cut around them would have been too fussy for me!  The red colored apple was simply adhered over the one stamped on the green panel.

That’s it for today!  I know it isn’t easy to think spring and green when you’re still having snowy, icy weather in your area, but maybe if we all pull together in our thinking, Spring will finally arrive.  Link your Think Green cards to the Cards in Envy site by 7:00 p.m. Eastern time Sunday, March 16.  We hope you’ll join in the fun and creativity!
