It's Not Easy Bein' Green

Happy Thursday! The temperature is finally *not* nine zillion! I'm so excited! We'd hit the pool, but AJ's taekwondo team has a demo tonight at the movie theatre for the opening of The Last Airbender. I love the Avatar series on Nick, and hope the movie is as good!

Ever have one of those projects that has driven you so nuts you just want it done. I'm there today. Several of my haunts have green-related challenges up this week, and I've been wanting to ink up this {Ippity} set I've had around for the longest. I started with a gorgeous-but-killer sketch at Card Patterns

I turned it and ended up with:

This is also for color combo challenged at:
Our Creative Corner (greens and blues)
The Color Chef (green, brown, and white) and
City Crafter (shades of green)

Since my shoestring budget doesn't allow for new dies right now (oh, how I'd love some of the new ones at MFT!), I had to get a little creative to manage the scallop. I cut three scalloped squares and played Frankenstein with them until they (mostly) fit, I had to use a bit of lace to cover up a gap.

The hard part was getting it together and photographed! Adhesive came undone. Twice, DP tore when I tried to reposition it. Shelf fell when I was taking the picture. Something jinxed this thing!

Oh, well. At least I've got a new house card in my stash.
Have a great day!
