{Another Green Card}

This is the other card I came up with for the It's All Green to Me Challenge on Moxie Fab World. This was a much simpler card and took me forever to finish---what's that about? Well, I also did another little thing that I'll tell you about later, so perhaps that's why it took so long.

I started with Kraft cardstock and made an A2 card. I stamped the branch from Rustic Branches with VersaMark on half of a panel of Dark Chocolate. Then I used clear embossing powder to emboss. I distressed the edges with my scissors. I stamped the tree from Father Knows Best in Dark Chocolate and New Leaf on Rustic Cream cardstock. I embossed and cut out the image with a square nestability die. I stamped the sentiment from the new Trademarks set and cut it out. I tied jute around the image and added the sentiment in the middle of the tree trunk. Then I threaded the buttons and attached them using glue dots. I popped the image up with foam tape and put the panel on the front of the card justified to the left side. I wrote "reduce reuse recycle" on the side of the card with a Copic marker and then I added three more threaded buttons. Altogether this card didn't take too long, but it took me 3 days to get it done!

So, in other news, I saw the latest Harry Potter movie last night with my oldest daugther, Caitlin. It was good---there was a guy in our theater with the funniest laugh! Everytime we would laugh, Caitlin and I would look at each other crack up---it was so funny! SO, are you a Harry Potter fan? What did you think of the movie? I'm warning you----I'm a rabid Potter fan!

Cute card, but more importantly, I am HUGE HP fan! Nathan and I saw the movie last night, and loved it. Of course, it does not perfectly follow book 6, but I thought it was a great movie. I laughed so much while watching it! We were obviously a room full of Potter fans, because everyone laughed along, and everyone got really, really still at the end. I don't know if I have ever heard a theater so quiet! Anyway, I want to go see it again, to see what I missed.

Sorry, told you I was a fan!
