Hi everyone.  It is time for another Dare to be Sassy Thursday challenge at Sassy Studio Designs.  This week the challenge is ALL ABOUT GREEN.  Your project must use green as the main color.  I am thrilled with this challenge as GREEN is my favorite color.  I started my card with this gorgeous Victorian Beauty digi from SSD.  I am absolutely addicted to the entire SSD line.  I would stay on this Design Team forever if they would let me.  I colored her with Copic Markers a couple of weeks ago hoping to be able to use her soon.  Of course I colored her GREEN so she fit right in with this challenge.  I added just a touch of MS glitter glue to accent her dress and earrings.

The frame was cut out using Nesties & I popped the image up with SU dimensionals.  The white potion of the frame was antiqued with some Distress Ink.  The pearls on the frame were colored with Copics.  The background paper was a freebie I got from DSE.  I printed it out and then ran it through my Texture Boutique with a Cuttlebug embossing folder.  The sentiment is from SU and all the cardstock is generic from Archiver's.

Now comes the fun part.  I learned quilling at my local 3FC craft meeting.  Natasha (her name has been changed to protect the innocent) was presenting last month and quilling is what she chose to teach us.  I am completely blaming her for my new obsession.  As you can tell, I am no expert but it really is fun to do.  Now I just have to find the time to practice.  I bought a bunch of quilling paper and some tools and I am hooked.  Bad Natasha!!!

Please hop over to the SSD blog site to see what other inspirations await you.  Thanks for stopping by.  If you are not a follower, please sign up.  I would love to have you.
