Lots of Green!

Yay, it’s Friday!  I have a couple green cards today for you!  The first is a St. Pat’s card, and it is for the Papercraft Star challenge this week:
I printed out a vintage St Patrick’s Day postcard and mounted it on some green cardstock and DP from MME:
There is hardly ANY stamping on this card!!  Just this tiny little tag, from another postcard, cropped and cut out, on which I added a little shamrock from Itty Bitties:
This is also for the Just Add Ink challenge, which is to “just add green”!
My second card is a birthday card for my nephew, and it uses scraps from the above card and an image from The Alley Way:
I colored my little frog with Copics, cut him out and popped him up;  the sentiment was punched with a circle punch and then sponged through a smaller mask for a fun effect!  The inside of the card has a computer-generated sentiment:  “We would never frog-et your birthday!”
This card is for the Kraft Journal’s Lucky Green challenge as well as the  Retrosketches sketch 54:
Thanks for visiting today!
Cassidy is learning to play with a glue stick, stickers and punches!  She really likes putting the punched pieces back into the cardstock, like a puzzle!  Smart kid!

Two cards! Both are fabulous and yet so different! But my favourite would have to be the vintage card (of course) - love this image and the little tag you've created. Thanks for joining us at Just Add Ink this week!

Two great cards Leanne! Love the vintage postcard image, she is just the cutest and of course stripes and polka dots are my fave DSP.
Your second card just makes me smile...loving that frog!
Boy, Cassidy is growing up so fast and clearly gets her creativeness from you! Thanks for joining us at JAI.
