FWF Friends with Flair Friday: go green

I have been on a green kick... usually I don't reach for greens when crafting but lately that's been my first choice! Probably because it is so ugly outside now with melting snow, mud, puddles and ice chunks everywhere, potholes, dirty cars.. ok you get the idea!

But in crafty land, it can be any color you want! I picked up a few sheets of Basic Grey's Origins line when I was at my lss last weekend and have been using it lots. LOVE IT!

So, here's my card for FWF week.. check out all the Unity addicts creations by starting at the Unity blog after 9 a.m.! (the inside pic isn't very great but I wanted to share the sentiment!



Details:
Bazzil card stock base
SU green layer
Basic Grey Origins dsp
misc ribbon
Ranger Distress Embossing Powders in Walnut Stain and Peeled Paint
Martha Stewart grass punch
Top Note Die
Bazzil Kraft c/s
Unity Image and Sentiment from Dec 09 KOTM

Have a great Friday!

Expect to have hope rekindled. Expect your prayers to be answered in wondrous ways. The dry seasons in life do not last. The spring rains will come again.”
