Going Green!

I found three fun challenges to try this weekend! I choose to do the sketch from Sketches In Thyme. The green challenge over at Really Reasonable Ribbon, anything green and to use ribbon/lace or trim. I also joined in the Green Blog Hop at The Paper Variety. 
I decided to not just use the color GREEN but to use recycled paper from DCWV, The Green Stack! I really liked this paper when I came across it at Joann Fabrics. I also recycled raffia ribbon from a wedding I had gone to, it was tied around some note cards!


I have to tell you I took this picture with lamp light because I was gone all day. Not the best quality but what cha gonna do! Here you can see that I hand stitched on my letters to add a little Green. I had just seen this on one of the blogs I follow and loved how she sew'd on her letters! I'm sorry I don't remember who to give credit too.


Here you can see the picture better! I used pop dots under the word together to add a little dimension.

Here you can see the distressing and chaking a little closer.
