Green Cards!

I made 5 cards this week, four of which are adaptations of the sketches at RAQ's Challenge. I have not blogged for a week. I was so tired after coming home from work, having worked extra shifts for the past two weeks. Anyway, my spirits are back up, and here are this week's cards...

I moved the elements around in my first card, The background was embossed using Daisy Cuttlebug folder. The label is from Spellbinders and the Shamrock was from Paper Dolls Dress Up, cut at 2". I used stickles and skittles to embellish the elements.

For the second card, I used MAMBI and embossed the background paper and the smaller rectangles with Birds and Swirls. The shamrock crystals are from Recollections and the shamrock ribbon is from Craft Essentials. The frames are from Spellbinders.

The tag used for the third sketch is a lucky find. It's from K&Co and is a leftover from a scrap page. Paper is from K&Co. Ribbon is from Offray and the green flower is from Prima. The background paper is from Bazzil, debossed using Floral Fantasy Cuttlebug folder.

I needed a Thank You card for a swap sister who sent me a lot of embossed paper. The label is from Spellbinder, embossed using Moroccan Screen Cuttlebug folder. Jasmine font was used, cut at 1 1/2". Layered flower is from Prima. Ribbon is from Offray and Paper is K&Co. Green skittles were again used as flower center and for the corners.

I made an extra card Wednesday last week. My inspiration for this card is "green beer". lol! Hubby and I don't drink, but I like the idea of green bubbles. I used Flourished Frame embossing folder. The sentiment is a Studio G stamp. I used Dew Drops for the background.
