IBS and Inkspirational #10: Shades of Green

Good morning friends-
Today, I am posting a card I created for Inkspirational Challenge Blog, who is being sponsored by Inspired By Stamping this week. 
The theme over at Inkspirational Challenge Blog is:
Here is the sample card I created using Delicate Doilies and The Sky's The Limit.
I puled out three different shades of green stamp pads that I had.  I inked the doily with the lightest, then I took my medium shade green and inked on top and around the middle of the stamp.  Lastly, I did the same thing with the darkest color, only this time, around the edges. 
I stamped the image on white card stock and matted it on green card stock, to finish the color scheme of the card.  I then inked a sentiment from The Sky's The Limit stamp and stamped it on vellum. Pleated the vellum, trim the edges and glued to the card.  Added some green to complete the card.

Hope you will join the girls from IBS and Inkspirational for this fun and "GREEN" challenge.
Make sure you visit Inspired By Stamping, today and everyday til the 10th.
