Feeling a little green...!

Hello to all in Blogland and I hope that you've been having a good weekend whatever you've been doing!  Nothing out of the ordinary here - the usual catering/cleaning/pet care!  And it's a very grey morning here so hoping that I might get some crafting in later (a list of DT things to be done lol!) after I get the dreaded ironing done! (sorry to use bad language on a crafting!). Whose idea was it that white shirts should be worn for work and school? Obviously some sadistic person that didn't do the laundry. And I just feel that if I don't do it, the two options are my son would look like he'd permanently slept in his clothes (although admittedly it does look that way occasionally) or that he'd cause an electrical fire if I insisted he iron his own clothes!  And yes, I do know in my heart of hearts, that once he leaves home I can't ever imagine him ironing any clothes anyway!

Anyway, apologies for the little rant! Just wanted to share this card with you that I made with a cute LOTV stamp 'A saucer of milk'

I've gone for green shades on this one, but now I thinking that maybe it looks a bit dark?  I've coloured the image with promarkers and flexmarkers

I've distressed the edges and added some TH distress inks. The backing papers are from K&Co (just love these!) with some flowers & leaves from WOC. The seam binding ribbon is from Pretty Little Ribbon Shop and the ticket sentiment is from Whimsy, with their ticket die.  The cream lace is from stash. 

And I decorated the inside to match! 
Hope you like it! And I hope that you enjoy the rest of your weekend.  I'll grit my teeth and get the ironing board out! 
Back soon,
