Inkspirational Challenge #10 Shades of Green

Inspired by Stamping is sponsoring this week's Inkspirational Challenge #10, which is to use shades of green. I used IBS French Boutique, Butterfly Wings, and Birthday Greetings to create this card. You can't really tell, but there are two papers here. Underneath is a green Anna Griffin paper and on top a velum transparent type Webster's Pages. Such a lovely paper, I only have this one sheet so I've been hording it. But it doesn't do me any good if I don't use it, now does it?!

I adore the topiary figures in the French Boutique set and the lettering of this Happy Birthday from the Butterfly Wings set. I don't really know what these little cattail like things are. I have a few packs in different colors I picked up on sale, but it doesn't say on the pack what they are! Anyway, I think they're cute.

I finished up the inside of the card with a lovely sentiment from IBS Birthday Greetings and a strip from the Webster's Pages transparent paper.
