Cooking It Up #60 - Make Mine a Double Green Punch!

It's a new recipe over at my Cooking It Up With Katie challenge blog and this week the ingredients are:

Use Green (a little or a lot)
Add some Punching
Make it a Double (use two of something)

Papertake Weekly - Anything Goes
Craft Your Passion - Anything Goes
Papercutz - Anything Goes
Moving Along With The Times - Anything Goes
Digi Doodles Shop - Anything Goes
AI Factory - Anything Goes
Friday Mash Up - Punches
Wags N Whiskers - Use a die or punch
Totally Gorjuss - 1, 2, 3 Your choice (I chose 1 image, 2 papers and 3 colors (green, blue and white))
Desert Island Crafts - Pick 3 (I chose No flowers, Words and Punches)
Gingerloft - Under The Sea
Take A Word - Exposed

Card Recipe:
Image - Mermaid by Gingerloft
Medium - Copic Markers
Paper - K and Co Citronella
Border Punch - Twirling Ribbon by Martha Stewart
Sentiment - Creative Imaginations Oceanside
Ribbon - Hobby Lobby

This is such a gorgeous image and the water looking paper and punch I think went really well with her.
It was nice to limit myself to two colors as well and I think it added to the whole "Undersea" feel to the card.
We'd love to see you put on your aprons and join us over at Cooking It Up With Katie this week.
