The Crafty Gals March Challenge!

Hi!
It's the 5th and that means it's time for another Crafty Gals creation!
I am our hostess this month. My title was:
"Not Luck......Blessings"
I asked the Gals to make a project using:
 1. 2 different shades of green.
2. Make the sentiment a "blessings" or "thankfulness" theme.
3. A Nature element somewhere on your creation. Examples: plant, sun, flower, grass, etc image and/or use patterned paper with plants, grass etc.....Any Natural element you can think of on your project. I want you to really go "green" on this challenge!
So, here's my card:
My greens are Old Olive and Certainly Celery.
I used the leaf lines stamp set on the Season of Friendship tree. The sentiment is from the Everyday Phrases set.
I had a piece of this Sweet Pea dsp in my scrap box. It went very well with the challenge I think.

Thanks so much for stopping by and be sure and check out all the Crafty Gals blogs to see what they created for our challenge! Their blogs are listed in my left sidebar.

I'm also entering this card in the Paper Sundaes Challenge ~ #110 Green or Good Luck!

Until next time...
Blessings...
