...Farm Fresh Friday Is Going Green

It's Farm Fresh Friday time at The Greeting Farm Blog, and this week we have...Going Green Challenge!  We were to either use something green, or recycle items to use on our I went with the color green.  I used one of the new digital images from Marina Neira called "Randy With Flower", then colored it with my Copic Sketch Markers. The patterned papers were from the BasicGrey's Offbeat paper pad, and after piercing the four edges of the large background panel, I added a Button and sentiment panel (from the "Anya Says" set) to complete the card.

I also wanted to share this scrapbook page that I made of my baby, Maggie using the "In The Spotlight Scrapbook Kit"...isn't she beautiful?!?  She was only 10 weeks old when I took this picture of her lounging in the tall grass of our backyard.  When she was a pup her eyes were bright green and absolutely I thought I'd showcase her green eyes for the green challenge! :)

Now let's see what the Farmers and Critter Crew have up their sleeves for today's challenge:
That's it for me today! Thanks for stopping by, and be sure to head over to the TGF Blog for the official challenge rules and prizes!  I'll see you again tomorrow with a card for another C4C Challenge. Until then...
