Card Makin' Mama's Challenge March Guest!

I am so excited to be joining Card Makin' Mama's this month as guest designer. These group of ladies have been my friends for so long and it's wonderful to be able to design along side them each. This week's challenge is all about GREEN! As long as you have some green on your project you're good!

Since we're sponsored by Some Odd Girl this challenge, I was generously able to use one of their adorable digi's Bloom Mae from their March Release to create my card. She is so cute - this is actually the first time I've colored one of these cuties and I'm a tiny bit hooked! I paired her with Make It Crafty's Ivy Swing  and Thanks Tag. The sentiment on my easel is from The Greeting Farm's Because of You set.

Here is a close up of the main image. I absolutely LOVE how this card turned out. I actually have it sitting on my desk because I love it so much!! I paired her with some of my FAVORITE Echo Park papers that I definately need more of since I used scraps for this entire card! I also want to enter this in the Some Odd Girl challenge to create your own embellishment as I created my ribbon flower in the corner. These are so fun and easy to make!

copics used:
Tree: E59, E57, E55, YG11, YG17, YG67, R89, RV000
Birds: B16, B14, B12
Skin: E0000, E000, E00, E21, R20, R01, (eyes)B000, B00, B02
