Pretty and Green

I created this card for a friend of mine who lost her 101 1/2 year old grandmother the other day. She sounded like an amazing woman who had a lot of vibrant memories, even in her old age. So I wanted to make something with a vintage style, but with a modern look. I was inspired to use shades of green by the Heart 2 Heart challenge this month and the Mojo Monday 286 sketch this week.

All products are Close to My Heart except those noted below:
 - Colonial White, Olive, and Cocoa cardstock
 - Juniper, Olive, and New England Ivy Ink pads
 - Wings Creative Basics paper and juniper ribbon
 - Treasure Life stamp set
 - Papertrey Ink Botanical Silhouettes Anniversary Set (for the sentiment)
 - Making Memories antique brad
 - Stampin' Up Square Lattice Embossing folder
 - Fiskars Upper Crest border punch

UPDATE (4/15): This card was selected as one of the Top 10 in the Go Green Heart 2 Heart challenge (eeek!). So honored!

Thank you for visiting :)
