Good morning!  The blog group that I belong to has monthly challenges and today is the day for our monthly challenge and I forgot all about it so I whipped up this card in no time.  This challenge this month was to create a card using:  different shades of green, a "blessings" or "thankfulness" sentiment, and to use a nature element somewhere on our cards such as a plant, sun, flower, grass, etc.

And so this is what I came up with.  I used the square flower stamp from the sale-bration stamp set Fresh Vintage.  I stamped it twice using old olive and once using certainly celery ink.  I punched them out and layered them on coordinating card stock.

The designer series paper that I used is from the current occasions mini catalog and it's called Twitterpated.  For my ribbon treatment I used retired hodge podge hardware and some ribbon.  By the way, you can still purchase Stampin' Up's! hodge podge hardware from the clearance rack.

I used a thank you sentiment and layered it using my word window and modern label punch and I did use one more punch on my card.  I used the eyelet border punch to punch out the white card stock towards the bottom of my card.  I totally forgot I had that punch until I found it in the back of my drawer. 

Thanks so much for stopping by.  If you have time be sure to check out the other cards from my blog group.  I'll post links to their blogs below.  Have a great day!
