SSCC 23 ...Just a touch of green ...

Hello, dear stampers !
Today's post is my card for this week's Stampin Sisters in Christ challenge which is to use a touch of green. I've been wanting to try a little vintage since that is WAY out of my usual . My card uses Kraft cs for it's base. The dp is all from K&C 's Life's Journey . I've used a EK Success punch for the border. The sentiment panel was edged with my Scor Pal. The sentiment is from Stampabilities and one that I picked up at Hobby Lobby. The sentiment was stamped in Memento Rich Cocoa. I also stamped the leaves from SU's Embrace Life set in the background to add a little visual interest. These were colored in with a Mint Green Copic marker. The primas are from Hero Arts and were sponged with Color Box's Chalk in Warm Red then layered along with punched mint green leaves. Dew Drops were added to the centers of the primas. Finally sheer cream and gold ribbon and cream satin ribbon tied in a bow with my Bow Easy finish it off. There's my take on vintage and with a touch of green for the challenge. What do you think ?
Have a super day, everyone ! See you back here on Saturday.
