I was almost giddy when I read the challenge was to use green as it is my favorite colour ♥   Being March, it is a perfect opportunity to combine green with Verve's newest digi Irish Coffee, just in time for St. Patrick's Day!  I have several Irish friends, so I always love the fact I create a special, hand made card for them.

I combined two green papers (happy sigh....), coloured and fussy cut the cloverleaf digis so I could create a "clover patch" down the side of the sentiment panel.  Of course, gold came to mind too, so I added a gold sequin to the middle of each shamrocks to bring a bit of sparkle to the card and finished things off with some green twine.  Can't wait to deliver this to my Irish friend on St. Patrick's Day :) 

Need a little inspiration? Check out the blogs linked below to see what the other Divas did with the challenge! It's sure to be a treat, and speaking of treats, we're giving away a $30 gift voucher to Verve.  Just leave a little love as you hop about, then come back and link up your green creations for a chance to win!
