Dude Time Doodles 1st Wednesday Challenge

This week at Dude Time Doodles we're thinking green. Check out the gorgeous Design Seeds palette below. 

I used the green color combo to create a relaxing scene for Hammock Harold, one of the easy-going residents of Dude Time Hollow. Harold doesn't need trees or a porch; He's ready to go everywhere -- or nowhere -- with his free-standing hammock!

There are several Green challenges out there this week, as St. Patrick's Day is fast approaching, and I just love the possibilities of this color. Be sure to check out the glorious projects by my fellow Design Teamies, and I hope you'll join us this week. You could win 3 DTD/Bonibleaux Designs images of your very own!

Don't you just love those sweet sheep in the Inspiration Photo (granted, they're two seconds from rushing the photographer, but still, cute!)?

I heat-embossed the sentiment in sparkly green, using a
rubber stamp from a Popcorn the Bear set from Crafter's Companion (a Father's Day freebie that came with the magazine).
I raided my scrap box for this card: even the card base is a scrap! I had cut, folded & punched this green piece many months ago but didn't end up using it. Here's the inside:

Love all the layers and it looks as good on the inside as the outside.

You just know that it finally warmed up enough for Harold to 'chill' out in his hammock, right, CG? I adore this card! Great choice on the flower, and the spotted/dotted papers, too. I'm off to figure out something suitable for a green St. Pat's. :-D
