Goin Green !

Good Afternoon!
I worked 5hrs today and then went grocery shopping. When I finally got home I needed a power nap! An hour later I was ready to tackle Joan's challenge again and added a little twist! I've been wanting to play at Annabelle Stamps.... so I actually combined the challenges!

Joan's requirements:

1. Use some kind of animal, bird or whatever
2. Use a floral background paper
3. Do something that takes you out of your comfort zone
4. Use some kind of Die


Annabelle's requirements:
 1, 2, 3 Recipe!  1 Border Stamp, 2 Petals and 3 Sprinkles! My sister Sue Rose is the challenge hostess... great challenge Sue!
My card base is whisper white layered with certainly celery and dp from a mat stack. I used punched posies and flight of the butterfly for my stamped images.
I hope to play with paper most of the weekend so you may see me again! Have a great weekend!
