Happy Earth Day!!

In honor of Earth Day, how about a little gardening? 

I used an old image I got in a RAK a million years ago called Veggie-bella by Stamping Bella. I colored her up with my Prismacolor pencils and layered her on a solid green from Basic Grey's 'Gypsy' line. I used my Nestabilities circle dies to achieve my layering look. The striped paper is from the same line but the harlequin is Stampin' Up, a freebie I received for buying so many dollars worth or something of that sort. :) I punched the hearts out of a Starbucks cup wrapper. The ribbon is forever old with no label left. This card is 5.5 inches square.

For the inside, I used a stamp from the 'Twisted Sentiments' set by My Favorite Things. Hopefully, I don't offend anyone; that is certainly not my intent. I would hope you find the humor that is meant to be found in this card. :)

I just ran around the park. Now, I think I'll find a tree to plant. :)

Thank you so much for looking! I hope this finds you happy and healthy.
