Back in the Dominican!

We're so excited to be in the Dominican on another missions trip! I had to schedule this post early since we have no internet while we're there. :) This week we have a new challenge for you at Addicted to CAS.
We are joined this month by Guest Designer Birgit. She does beautiful CAS cards and often uses wonderful linen-looking cardstock that I must check into because it makes every one of her cards look like they should be framed pieces of art!  Make sure to stop by her blog and give her some stampy love! 

I guess the most obvious way to go with this code word this time of year would be St. Patrick's Day. However, I have no stamps of that theme, nor a reason to ever send someone a St. Patrick's Day card! :)  So I decided to make a card using only my new go-to green, Mossy Meadow. It is so rich and beautiful! 
I used generation stamping with Old Olive ink for my leaf image and the sentiment is Mossy Meadow.  The ribbon started out white and I colored it with my (sadly now discontinued) Blendabilities.  I rounded the two bottom corners, added some pearls and called it a complete CAS card! :)  When I showed it to Brett he told me it was classy and one of his favorites that I have ever made so I will call that a success! lol 

Thanks for stopping by! Make sure to check out all of the creations by the entire design team over at ATCAS!
