Suo Challenge #40 It's Fun Being Green!

Hi All,
I was working on some Easter cards last night. I was prepping some cards for when I get that new "He is Risen" stamp and when I saw the SUO #40 Challenge this morning, I made another Easter Card featuring green as the main colour for the new SUO challenge. Wanted to post this earlier so I have been looking around the SUO page this morning looking for the linky tool but just couldn't find it. Will try to post it to the SUO #40 Challenge later. To make this card,  I used whisper white craft ink and stamped the bees from the from the Nature Walk set and then put clear powder on them and heated those little springtime bees with my heat tool and then took my sponge dauber with Always Artichoke ink to ink the background cardstock which was that lovely SU speckly Naturals Ivory....

I stamped in Always Artichoke the little half doilies from the Kindness Matters set and then the butterflies from that set in basic black. I used my embossing buddy then stamped Easter Wishes from the Something to Celebrate set in Garden Green and then put clear powder and heated that up. For the ribbon I used some green SU seam ribbon-need to look closer at the package to see what kind of green.  I then took more of the same seam ribbon and wrapped it like a V around my big kitchen fork to make that cute bow and then added a brad that my demo gave me months ago. Not sure which collection of brads it is from...probably and old one! A little Green DSP for the border and mounted on black cardstock. I think this card showcases several kinds of green in an elegant way!
