Crafty Gals March Challenge!

Good Morning Everyone!

Today I have the March Challenge from our SCS Crafty Gals Group.  Melina was our hostess and gave us quite a challenge.  I am not typically a nature girl when it comes to my cards, but I think I made this one work for me.  It just took a bit of searching for the right stamp.

So the challenge was:


1. 2 different shades of green.
2. Make the sentiment a "blessings" or "thankfulness" theme.
3. A Nature element somewhere on your creation. Examples: plant, sun, flower, grass, etc image and/or use patterned paper with plants, grass etc.....Any Natural element you can think of on your project.
I want you to really go "green" on this challenge!

Well, with that in mind, I found the some green paper (yes, it has two shades of green by itself), then I searched for the sentiment.  I think this one is perfect.  Off to search for the image; I have really found myself searching a lot at Sassy Cheryl's Designs and I thought of this little flower girl.  She is perfect for this challenge and me!
