Green Wishes

I have to admit, green is not my color! I wanted to create a card using a color that I normally would not use as a main color. This is what I came up with. I'm not sure how I feel about I did have fun creating it because I did some heat embossing on the background. A technique that I love on projects that I see but have been unsuccessful with.  I am really happy with my results on this card.  I got my nestabilities dies out, which have not gotten much use recently, for the flourishes and circles. I punched the sentiment out with a Stampin up punch. I really "wish" you enjoy this card. Thanks for stopping by, stay crafty.

Paper: Botanical steampunk from Recollections, solid card stock from Stampin up
Nestabilities dies: Grand circles and scalloped circles, Fleur De Lis accents and Motifs
Prima flowers
Background stamp: Medallion from Stampin up
Martha Stewart embossing powder in evergreen
Digi: Aliah from Hannah Lynn, Crafts and me Stamps
Brads and bling from my stash

I plan to enter this card into the following challenges:
Moving along with the times: Punch it 
Anything goes challenge blog: Monochrome
Sketch Saturday: the sketch
Celebrate the Occasion: Green with envy
Fussy and Fancy Friday Challenge: Circles
