More going for green

Are you tired of seeing green on my blog yet?   I hope not because today I have another card with green.  And pink!  I remember in high school this was a hot color combo. Don't think I have seen it as hot  lately but do see that lime green is making a huge impact in the fashion industry.  Have you noticed the influx of shirts in this shade?  I love the color so glad it's considered "in". 
Today Sentimental Sundays has a "Let's Go Green" challenge.  Interpretation is as you see fit.  It could be the color or using something recycled, or upcycling as I like to write.  I did both because it fit so well.  I bought a "Life is Good" tee shirt last year and had the tag in my bin to use for crafting.  It's a pretty shade of green and happened to blend nicely with this image I had colored.  It's a nice sturdy piece of chipboard.  I covered the words on the tag with circles of cardstock.  Then layered the image on top to give my turtle the feeling of walking on air.  Okay, I am not so great with backgrounds, floors, etc.  I plan to work on it.  Meanwhile, the invisible floor carries my turtle to his destination. 
The turtle, Mr. Slow Poke,  is a Jane's Doodle image which you can find here.  I love the simpleness of her designs.  They are easy to color in and also cut out. 
The sentiment is of course from Sentimental Sundays.  It's part of the "Hang in There" set found here.  There are 3 sentiments in this set for the amazing low price of  $2.  If you have not jumped on the digi sentiments, what are you waiting for?  Try out the FREE sentiments available this week only at the blog.  Just scroll down past the lovely DT's work and you will find them.  While you are there, consider leaving some ♥.  Better yet, create a fabulous card and link up to join in the challenge to become a winner.
