Hi, Diane with you today with my card I created for our  challenge #76
Going Green.


I have a love for mason jars and I know this 
Darice Mason Jar Embossing folder was made just for me!!
I have even seen real jars in this color in the stores!


I embossed it on a piece of green vellum, attached it to my
Cryogen White Metallic card stock with glitter brads.

I cut three layers of the wreath from scrap green paper using
I layered the three pieces, just slightly off setting them a bit
and glued them down sparingly with 


The tiny flowers you see on the wreath are part of the
Spring Wreath set.  
I used Paper Blossoms Craft Molding Mat to make my flowers
I used the tweezers from the tool kit to somewhat "fluff" up
the leaves on the wreath,

I added a sheer bow and a Forest Hummingbird
that I painted with Twinkling H2O's Autumn Brilliance.


Thank you for visiting with me today!!!
