Fussy and Fancy Friday Guest Designer card

Happy Friday to everyone and welcome to my card for this fortnights challenge at Fussy and Fancy Friday Challenge which is Green either the colour or recycling. I am a Guest Designer for March so I will be doing another card near the end of the month. The sponsor for this challenge is Sweet Pea Stamps oh so gorgeous.

As you can see I have gone for the colour green although I could pretend that the lace is Mum's old knicker decoration!!!! - this may be true because I rescued it from her house recently before she sells up!!!! The image is from a My Craft Studio CD rom called Card Makers Library which has some beautiful silhouttes on it. I have mounted it onto a piece of black card with gold glitter on it and embossed using the swiss dots Cuttlebug folder.The paper is from a Papermania pack I bought recently called Capsule collection - Verde
The ribbon is from a set called Elements that I have had forever. I finished the image off with some green glitter. I have used the sketch at Midnight Madness shown below. There are two options and I chose the busier one!

I finished the whole card off with some black lace - origin disputed!! - which has been folded at the side next to the home made flower.
So there you have it!!! Please visit the Fussy and Fancy Friday Challenge Blog for some more inspiration. Some of the girls have used the sponsors stamps so please pop by.

Now it wouldn't be a Dragonlady card without a few challenges being entered so here are the ones I will be entering this card in:-

Pile It On - The one you must (one colour plus a neutral) I have chosen Green and Black,

Bee Crafty - Embossing,

Ooh La La Challenge - Anything Goes,

Die Cuts R Us and Crafty Creations - Make your own flowers,

The Pixie Cottage - Green and,

Flutterby Wednesdays - Butterfly, fairy or angel and it's theur 100th Challenge - congratulations.
