The Pixie Cottage Challenge - Green

Happy Wednesday!
It's almost St Patrick's Day so to celebrate the team over at The Pixie Cottage are challenging you to use a little Green in your creations this week!
Also we have a very special surprise for you, we have a FREE digital image by our super artist and team member ArTish that we would love to see you use on your card!
I've used it and it sure is a cute image!
This is the first time we've offered a digital image and it will go in the store after the challenge is over in case you miss it.
Are we looking at going all digi on you? No, of course not, rubber is our first love but customer feedback has led us to know that some of you want the instant gratification and versitility of a digital image. But remember that the image is for your use only, sharing and copying files is stealing so please respect the artists time and skill by keeping the image for yourself. Feel free to post the link back to here for others to get the image but do not post it on your own blog.

I have a few other challenges with this card:

Just Us Girls had a great Sketch
Moxie Fab Tuesday Trigger had a wonderful photo of Gingham Green chairs
