Anything Goes using "Green" with Just A Scrappin' ....

Hello blog friends!!! I am super excited as this is my first card as DT member for Just A Scrappin'! We have such a great challenge going on this week full of ideas and lots of inspiration and I sure hope you come and play with us! This week's challenge is "Anything Goes" Make a card, layout, or project however; the color  Green is the theme plus any other color that you would like to use. So here is my
card for this week's challenge:

I had a lot of fun creating this card. I used Bazzill white cardstock and some gorgeous green stripe/floral double-sided patterned paper from American Crafts. I used my ruler and grabbed my xacto knife and cut a slit about 2 inches or so to create an opening to showcase "what's underneath".  I folded the flaps and adhered them down. The beautiful floral design that is revealed was created by using the Wildflowers stamp set by Hot off the Press. I used my Paper Trey Inks; New Leaf, Pure Poppy and Orange zest to create the background focal. My sentiment stamps were stamped out in momento tuxedo black ink and they are from the "You Are" stamp set by Anna Griffin. Both sentiment pieces are popped up on foam tape.

To finish my card off I added two yellow paper clips for some dimension on the folded flaps and created a bow using some sheer peach ribbon that I had in my stash. I also inked up around all my white edges using some tea dye distress ink. I normally do not always finish the insides of my cards but with this card I did. Here is the inside:

Well thats my card for today and I hope you decide to pull out your favorite papers and supplies and give this challenge a try! The challenge will be open for one week so head on over to Just A Scrappin'
