It's Not Easy Being Green...

Got to love a bit of Kermit... anyway, my lovely friend Sam is a big fan of green, and it's her birthday, so it seemed right to make a card for her in her favourite colour...

I decided to create a masterboard with Frescos , because I love masterboards and Frescos make it so easy.
 I brayered various greens on my paper - Guacamole, Limelight and Sage then added a little Beach Hut for contrast,
added some stamping in Guacamole and Beach Hut then a watery Honeydew
 before some more stamping in Hey Pesto  - Ellen Vargo's stamps throughout.
Added some script stamping using Olive archival ink - a quick spritz of Colour Bloom (Glistening Waves)

Trimmed a piece to fit a 6x6 card, distressed the edges and edged it with Evergreen Fresco,

 then used one of the die cut/embossed dragonflies Emma did for us when we went to Port Sunny - this is a grungepaper one, I painted it with Beach Hut then added Colour Bloom sprays in Glistening Waves, a spritz of Cobalt, and Sunshine, and when it was dry, a brushing of silver Treasure Gold
 Stamped the happy birthday from JoFY25 and cut them out, painted the letters with Twinkling H2Os

Happy Birthday,Sam!!
