HIMCR #36 - Color Challenge

Happy Saturday!!  I'm so excited to kick off a new month of challenges!  Why?  Because Hiding in My Craft Room now has a Design Team! 

The challenge this week, the 1st week of the month, is a Color Challenge!  The colors are Monochromatic Green.  So green, green, and green.   You have until Friday, March 9th to link up your Green creation to get entered into the monthly drawing this week.  When uploading to online galleries please use code HIMCR36.

Here's what I came up with:

Leprechan (Isn't he the cutest?) was cut at 3.5" from Simply Charmed cartridge.
Circle tag was cut from Art Philosophy at 2.5"

Card Base: SU  Glorious Green 4 1/4" X 5 1/2" (folded)
Card front:   SU Gable Green 4 1/8" X 5 3/8"
Other Cardstock / Paper:   DCWV stack, Crushed Curry, Blushed Blossom (I can't believe that this color is retired!), Dusty Durango, Basic Black
Ink:  Stampin Up Glorious Green 
Stamps:   SU Rainbow's End
Accessories:  Cuttlebug & Square Lattice, D'Vine Swirl, and Swiss Dots embossing folders, Cricut & Simply Charmed and Art Philosophy cartridges, Wal-mart ??? ribbon,

You can see the HIMCR schedule of challenges and guidelines HERE!  Please be sure and follow the few easy guidelines so your creation will get entered into the monthly giveaway!!!

Just a few guidelines: 
1.  The current weekly challenge linky will be up until Friday night at midnight MST.  Be sure and link your creation back to the actual post and not just your blog home page.
2.  When posting your creation on your blog or online gallery please link it back to this challenge.  This helps me to spread the word and the FUN!
3.  Please create something new for the current challenge and NOT use something you've made previously.  However, you can combine a HIMCR challenge with other challenges. It is always fun to complete more than one challenge at a time!
4.  The winner of the monthly giveaway will be posted the 8th of the following month!
5. Have FUN!!
6. Let me know if I forgot something!
