Go Green!

This week's challenge at Sentimental Sundays is "Go Green", so to use either the colour green  (which is handy cos it's my fav colour) or recycling.  I did a bit of both: I used lots of green & I recycled too!  The holly leaves are made from last year's crackers & the berries are from a choc wrapper.  I love this image from Di's Digi Downloads called "Eskimos Delight" which I coloured with ProMarkers & Glamour Dust.  I made a rosette thingy by gathering some ribbon (it started off as a bow but I couldn't get it how I wanted it lol) & adding a pearl - I really like the look of it so I know what I'll be doing with all my scraps of ribbon now (& there are many).  I finished off with 2 ribbons, a greeting & a charm.  Be sure to check out the fab DT creations for lots more inspiration & don't forget there are free sentiments every Sunday too!
