Whimsical Wednesdays DT Post--Going Green

Hey, are all having a great day!

This week's Whimsical Wednesday challenge is all about "Going Green."  The challenge was to use green somewhere in our project.

Our sponsor this week is "A Day for Daisies," which is offering a $12.00 gift certificate to the challenge winner.

They were generous enough to let us use their images for our projects today.  I decided on this adorable little bee!  Isn't he cute?

Here is my project:

I inked the background of white cardstock with blue Color Box cat eye chalk.  I added a strip of flowered border paper with a green background from a DCWV stack.  Then I stamped a border of the sentiment, "Thanks for your Kindness" from the Whimsical Designs Everyday Sentiments set.

I added the three bees from the image above...each is colored a little differently with Stampin' Up Markers and highlighted with a Martha Stewart glitter paint marker.  I cut them out by hand and adhered them to the card with Elmer's Pop Up Glue Dots.  I love those things!

I stamped the same border on the inside of the card.  Here is a closer look at the sentiment:

Thanks for stopping by my blog today...head on over to Whimsical Designs and link up your "going green" project for a chance to win this prize from A Day for Daisies.

Have a great day, y'all.
