Welcome to It's Earth Day It's My (Gaby's) Birthday Blog Hop

Happy Birthday Gaby and Happy Earth day too!
You should have arrived here from Liz's blog.


Photobucket
Wasn't her project just FABULOUS!!!

Now on to my project
 In celebration of Gaby's birthday and Earth day I decided to make a fabulous GREEN card.  I love the look of monochromatic and iCopic Lover (one of my new favorite blogs) is having a monochromatic challenge and it is in fact a day to celebrate being green (environmentally speaking) so I chose green!  I love this adorable Mo Manning stamp called Wonderful Day - it seems so fitting for a day to celebrate Gaby and the Earth.  I colored her in Copics.
Here are the following colors I chose:
The Happy Birthday stamp is also from Mo Manning and comes with the Wonderful Day set.  I simply layered a number of different papers.  The solid green is from Stampin' Up and the checkered paper is from the Basic Grey stack Baby Girl.  
 I also used my Martha Stewart punch to create a border close to the bottom of the card.
Now, hopefully you can see the baker's twine that I added to this card as well.  I bought this twine from Kimberly at My Craft Spot.  I really love this twine and it seems to be so popular right now. 
and because I love this twine and Kimberly's fast and great service if you leave a comment telling me your favorite color you will be entered to win a fabulous bunch of 3 crinkled ribbons of your choice and a set of Bakers Twine  from Kimberly at My Craft Spot.
My Craft Spot
I will chose my winner on Monday following the blog hop!
