Go Green w/Susan

Hello Crafters,

    I created another card and thought I would share with you today.  This card is for the Challenge over at: http://joanstouch.blogspot.com/ and http://classycardsnsuch.blogspot.com/2014/03/ccns-challenge-22-susans-garden-flower.html  The Challenge was to use Green and White, Oval, and embossing folder (option - color one side of Embossing folder) and something sold at Joan Garden. At CCS you had to use a Susan's Garden flower and something sold at the OLS. The embossing color folder has always been a real challenge for me but decided to try and I really do like the out come this time.

I have had this Cuttlebug  embossing folder for a while and never really used it and I love all the flourish so I brayered the inside top with TH Distress Ink "Mowed Lawn" laid the card inside and ran through the eBosser.  Believe it or not I loved the first try. It just has a different finish and almost weathered look.
Anyway I put glitter on all the flourished that had been raised from the embossing and then added an oval
cut from clear card stock over the top center after encircling with they tiny flower ribbon. I just noticed they almost look gray in the pic but they are really green with white pearl centers. I made a Susan's Garden flower for center bottom and added to the card.
