C4C128 -- Going Green with Stampotique

It's St. Patrick's Day today, so Frances, our Crazy4Challenges  hostess for March, requested that we use green on our creations today.  We also have a wonderful sponsor this week, Stampotique, and this image/sentiment stamp is one of theirs.  It reminds me of many of my favorite 'things'........the beach, friends, silhouettes, and education ( since I am a retired teacher).  In case you can't read the sentiment, it says....."Life is nothing without friendship."

Now some of you may be saying.....WHERE's the GREEN????.....but it really is there.  I used River Rock cardstock for my main image panel, and Certainly Celery was used for my ferns near the flower.  River Rock is a very subdued, neutral green.  So, the challenge police will not have to visit my door today.

This sketch is a variation of one I saw at some challenge in recent weeks.  I just LOVE sketches.  I just wish I had more time in the day to play with the many challenges that have sketches.

ANYHOOOOOOO......that's my story.......and now you really must flutter on over to the Crazies Blog to see the fab 'green' creations of the rest of the team.  The Design Team from Stampotique joined us this week, so there is lots of inspiration to be found at the blog.  You will also find the details there on how you can play along with the team.

KNOCK, KNOCK...oh, you thought that was the challenge police, didn't you? LOL Didn't mean to scare you. I saw those green ferns immediately so I knew you were paper or not. Super card and I'm wondering if you miss teaching. I'm thinking you probably do in a way but glad to be retired.

Hope you've had a happy St. Patrick's Day.
