It's Not That Easy Being Green

Do you know that song? It was written by the talented Joe Raposo and recorded famously by Kermit the Frog and by Frank Sinatra too. If you don't know it go find it on You Tube, I'll wait...really go ahead...  Isn't that a great song? Anyway when I first saw the various shades of green in this week's Color Throwdown Challenge it came immediately to mind. 



I decided to dig through some of the supplies I hadn't used in a long time and decided to use this set of Sizzilits dies from Sizzix. I don't know the name of them and they are long retired, but I've always liked that came as a coordinated set with the elements in nice proportion to each other. 

Working with the various shades of greens was a bit of a challenge for me, which is no doubt what got me thinking about that song, but in the end, just like Kermit, I think I actually really like it.

Happy Crafting!

Your card is beautiful! I love using Olive Green on my cards also...must be because I was an Army wife many moons ago at Ft. Bragg.
I just love the ribbon/raffia on your card...really ties (haha) it all together!
