Inky Challenge Think Green!



Good Morning Everyone!! Happy Wednesday!!! I hope everyone is enjoying their week so far!!! Well...Today is another fun Inky Impressions Challenge. This weeks challenge we are THINKING GREEN. You must add green somewhere on your creation. I decided for my card today to really think green, I used Awareness Ribbon LiLi for my creation. Did you know that a green ribbon means the following.......

Lyme Disease Awareness
Organ transplantation and donation Awareness
Environmental protection
Mitochondrial disease awareness

I did not know this and thought I would share. Of course my card today is based on the Environment THINK GREEN!!! I used Earthy colors to bring this LiLi to life!!! Hope you enjoy my creation!!!!

Come on over and join in the fun at OUR BLOG!!! We would LOVE to see what you create...Also you will get a chance to be Inked by the Inkettes and display a fun blinkie to your sidebar!!! No need to use Inky Images but if you have them why not use them!!!!

My card for today also fits in the following Challenges
The Pink Elephant to add Green

Tellen's Place - Anything Goes
