Fusion #6 - Friends Forever

I had to put up some green to wish you a Happy St. Patrick's Day!  Fusion had the perfect challenge to help me out.    I had a hard time mixing and matching elements before I came up with something that I liked.  It's like putting together a puzzle trying to get all the pieces to fit sometimes.     I made it harder than it had to be because I could have just chosen to work with the inspiration photo OR the sketch.  I always try to combine both - that's where it gets tricky sometimes.   
I was inspired by the green flowers.  I stamped a lime green flower background and topped it with some flowers fussy cut flowers that  I stamped in a darker green and added some highlights to with Copic markers.  A few little gems to add some sparkle, and some lush velvet ribbon and  I'm done!
 I hope you're having a great day - maybe resting your head after the festivities and parades this weekend?    Me? Sad to say I'm off to the dentist!  Maybe a few green beers when I get back to help me forget! LOL!  Have a great day!

Supplies Used:  Finished Size 4.25 x 5.5" 
Stamps: Stampin' Up!  Petal Parade, Banner Greetings
Card Stock:  PTI Pine Feather, Vintage Cream, SU! Gumball Green
Ink:  Memento Cottage Ivy, Pear Tart, Copic Markers
Ribbon:  3/8" Woven Velvet Parrot May Arts

I can just picture you with your swollen jaw and a green beer in your hand...hopefully you won't feel too awful to enjoy St. Patrick's Day! Love your card with all the green, happy flowers. That velvet ribbon really IS lush...great description for it! Very cute little banner with the stick pin too!
