Outlines - Go Green!

This week's Outlines' Design Team challenge is Go Green - Green is our theme color in honor of St. Patrick's Day, but it doesn't have to be a St. Patrick's Day card. So mine is definitely green, but not St. Patrick's Day!   I used Bunny Tail (F-933), which happens to be on sale this week for 20% off!  I added the Busy Bee Sm. (A-83) in the upper right corner of the Bunny Tail image. 

My sentiment is the bottom half of Friends Fur-ever (B-1080), which I just colored with an olive green marker and stamped without the Friends fur-ever portion of the sentiment.  Although I guess it would have been appropriate with this image, I wanted the focus on the Bunny Tail image and didn't want the sentiment to be that large.

The bunny image was stamped three times and I used the whole bunny for the second layer, popped up with foam tape, and then cut out just the tail and the collar with the flower and popped them up on foam tape, along with the butterfly.  The tail is Liquid Applique and the collar has Olivine Swarovski Crystals for the polka dots (size 7) and in the center of the flower (size 12).  My flowers are 'colored' using Viva Decor Pearl Paint Pens - I love those darn things!  I just stocked up on about a dozen colors!  Here I used two combinations: Salmon with Bronze and Lilac with Violet.  I also used the Lilac pen instead of brads for the sentiment label. 

Please be sure to visit the rest of the design team members' blogs to see their green creations!
