Shades of Green challenge

This is my entry into this weekends challenge over at Impression Obsession, which is "shades of green".  Be sure to stop by and check out all the other fabulous entries.  The winner gets a $25 shopping spree at the Impression Obsession store

I began by brayering a background using 3 shades of green and then stamping CC018 Cover a Card Greenery background twice.  I mounted this to a medium green panel, then using a Southwest corner punch, added the thread to frame the panel.  This was then mounted on a darker green panel.

I stamped the three butterfly blocks and the saying from CL70 Clear Stamp set Butterfly Wishes onto Cryogen white paper and punched them out with a 1 3/8" square punch.  Using the same, medium then dark green matting, I mounted them onto the card, added the embossed panel and the bow and I was done.

Finished size is 4 x 9 inches.  And look, no DP, no Copics just ink, cardstock and wonderful stamps.
