365 Cards Day 120 - Digi Kitty Week

365 Cards has another sponsor this week - The Digi Kitty. The DT got some fun digi stamps to play with. I used a nesting doll from the My Babushka set. The challenge for today is: Shades of Green - use at least three. Ok, that's a lot of green for my taste! But I did my best!

I wanted to capture the European feel of nesting dolls, so I embossed the black cardstock with the Cuttlebug Nat folder (one of the EU releases). I used three prints of Basic Grey paper to paperpiece the doll. (Rose, are you proud of me?!) I even pulled out an old border punch! And some fabbie braid.

I'm pretty sure there are at least three shades of green here! The inside of the card says: "friends are special treasures." Just like nesting dolls contain a treasure inside each one! Aren't I so clever? {giggle}

  3. Yeah, it's a lot of green... but you've balanced it beautifully with the black for a very striking card. Love the texture of the embossed background... and that ribbon. :)
