CR84FN31 - Green Thumb

Hello there!  Today I have two cards that I've created using the colors from the CR84FN31 Color Challenge and the Papertrey Ink stamp set Green Thumb.  I was lucky enough that a few weeks back my Hope Your Day is Fabulous card was chosen as a winner for the Papertrey Ink Make-it Monday Challenge #12 and I got to pick a free stamp set and Green Thumb was my choice. 

For the above card I used the gardening boot image from the Green Thumb set along with the stems, flowers and sentiment.  I stamped, cut out and popped the center flower and added a small button, I also added a row of stitching, scallop border and some pink bakers twine.
For both cards I used an embossed panel of pretty in pink cardstock, crumb cake as a base and My Mind's Eye designer paper. 
The second card I used the pot image from the Green Thumb set and the flower, stem and die from the Flower Fusion #1 set.  I saw Maile's beautiful card combining these two sets and love it, so I thought I would give it a try.
Not to toot my own horn...but I was very excited to have my Teapot Thinking of You card chosen as one of the Terrific Top 3 from the CR84FN30 Color Challenge.
