CQC #128 & RS #2 ~ Tons of Fun!

It's the season of green!! Spring is in the air, St. Patrick's Day is near and the ColourQ has given us an assortment of green to work with this week!
I decided to follow the colors in the pattern of the pillow; the way they repeat themselves as they move toward the center. But first I needed a game plan so I'm playing along with the new Retro Sketches challenge.

My celery green sure didn't photograph true to life...oh well...that happens I guess. It really does look better in person ~ ha! This cute dinosaur paper is from My Minds Eye, the reverse side is the sweetest gray polka dot! Several dies were used in layers to graduate the colors. Spellbinders labels 18, PTI's fillable frames #3, limitless layers and rick rack border die (I used the negative of the rick rack). The tiny canvas banner by Maya Road is stamped with a little dinosaur from Endless Creations. I added a few assorted buttons and a fun teeny clothespin for accents. My tag is a Martha Stewart punch stamped with a PTI sentiment from the tiny treats: birthday set.

And there you have it! Thanks for taking the time to visit my little piece of the blogging world. I want to give a shout out to my friend Sue Lelli of Card Therapy who honored me with the Liebster award a few days ago. She's such a sweetheart! I also have several new followers that I want to send a BIG WELCOME !!!
