It's easy being green (color challenge)

Hi everyone! I hope everyone is well today. This is likely my last post for the week, since I'm leaving tomorrow to go spend a fun weekend with friends in beautiful Aspen, CO! Yay for downtime!! I will miss my hubby and the boys, but it's really been such a crazy summer, I am looking forward to a little R and R. This card is for the color challenge over at Stacey's Stampin' Stage, Heres the link- sorry for the ugly text, my links button only seems to work about half the time.

The colors for the challenge are: Wild Wasabi, Crumb Cake (aka Kraft), white and Certainly Celery. I decided to do this challenge because a monochromatic color scheme like this is really out of the ordinary for me. I tend to be an analgous or complementary color scheme kinda gal. I also tend to use bolder colors, so I like how soft this turned out, The stamps are "Upsy Daisy" and "Occasional Quotes." I did spritz the kraft daisy piece with some gold Smooch Spritz, to add a little zip, but, you can't see that here. A button from my button jar and some old floral wire complete the look. The Wild wasabi piece was the only scrap I had left of that color, already in the size you see here & that scalloped piece I found in scraps. Yea! Don't you just LOVE it when half the work is already done for you??? So, a simple card, and NO way I'm fitting it into a regular envelope with that big bow! Lol, I tried to make it smaller, but I really liked it better this way, so, it stays.  Well, that's it for me, PLEASE comment or follow, if you follow my blog on google friend connect (so I can see it) I'd be happy to follow yours too. TFL and have a SUPER weekend!!!!
