Fresh Green Wreath

This is my third post for today.  Click HERE for the Custom Button post, 
and HERE for Beautiful Iris, a new release from IBS.  

I'm trying out a new-to-me challenge this week:  Inkspirational, co-owned by my friend Ellen.  Our design team at Inspired By Stamping is pairing with the DT from Inkspirational this month.  IBS is sponsoring the prize.  :-)  This week's challenge is all about Shades of Green.

For Christmas, I received a maple leaf punch and hadn't played with it yet.  This was the perfect chance to create a fresh green wreath (well, freshly made of paper!).




I added some Liquid Pearls to dot the leaves.  I'm quite sure you won't see this in nature ;-).....
The sentiment is from Flowers Bloom by IBS.


St. Patrick's Day is coming up, and it's a great chance to make a "Shades of Green" card if you're feeling inspired.  Come play with us.  You could win the prize from Inspired By Stamping!

Paper: white - PTI; assorted green prints
Ink: Versafine Onyx Black - Tsukineko
Fibers: white satin ribbon
Other: White Opal Liquid Pearls - Ranger; Romantic Rectangles die - Spellbinders; Maple Leaf punch - Martha Stewart
