Green with Optional Gold (Heart 2 Heart Challenge)

For our first Heart 2 Heart Challenge in March, you are asked to incorporate Green, with optional Gold, in your creation! The possibilities are endless! Be sure to include at least one Close To My Heart product in your artwork.

I had fun creating this sloth card, with an appropriate sentiment. The browns and greens were perfect for the theme and a little pop of gold was a great addition of sparkle. You know...sparkle is always necessary. 

I incorporated some paper distressing by slightly misting the cardstock, crumbling it with my hands and then laying it flat to attach to the card base. It made it look a bit more outdoorsy. Do you agree? 

Here is a close-up so you can see the details.

Head to your creative studio and make something aligned with this theme. Then, link up to us at Heart 2 Heart. We love to see what you create!

Here's to the first week in March! 🍹 Make it a GREAT one!
