"Going Green" Whimsical Wednesday Challenge


Hello everyone! It's time for a new Whimsical Wednesday challenge. This week the challenge is to use the color green in your card/project.
I cut the green oval mat from Cricut Craft Room Basics and used a hole punch to punch the holes is the scallops. The hedge hog is cut from B is For Boy and I used the shamrock from Paper Doll Dress Up instead of the leaf he is supposed to be holding. I did some inking, chalked his cheek, and added Glossy Accents to his nose. The background was embossed with Seeing Spots and I stamped the sentiment which is from Whimsical Designs Whimsical Fun Vol. 1. 
I hope you all will play along this week and don't forget to check out what the rest of the DT has created! Have a great day!
I am going to enter this into the following challenges:
Fantabulous Cricuts "Luck Of The Irish" challenge this week is to use a shamrock and green.

Gigi, this card is so much fun. I am loving the green hedge hog, and the way you put the shamrock on his nose. I can't believe you hand punched those circles they are perfectly spaced. I like the shades of green too..very soft. You really did the green challenge proud:)
