Green Day!

By the way, if you aren't a very GREEN person but wish you were tell me something you COULD do in that last daily question. I mainly asked it because
It's GREEN Day!
Are you following the RAINBOW to the treasure at the end?
I hope so!
It's never too late to go back and make up for lost time, but if you play along, you'll definitely increase your chances!
First things first.
My Christmas Challenge was mainly because I had a half finished Christmas card laying on my desk begging to be finished. I completed the card which I started out using
Beate's Weekend Sketch WSC62. I used one of my favorite Christmas ODBD sets "We Three Kings".
If you haven't seen cards with this set around Blogland, check out these beauties!

You want that set now, huh?
Here is my card.

Pretty easy to do and the copper and Artichoke look so handsome together. I think I may use this masculine combination again some day!

Now for your GREEN goodies! Do you have any idea how many shades of green cardstock I have? Hmm... this sounds like a good BONUS question! I know, I know, I can't stop giving things away. Since I am making a trip to the post office tomorrow, I might as well send one more envelope! Give me your best guess on how many shades of green cardstock I own and you'll get your own little mini GREEN RAK! It will look like a smaller version of THIS:

Included in today's addition to the "Pot O' Gold"
(get it.... pot of gold at the END of the RAINBOW? Ha! I kill me.)
~One prescored card of every shade of green I own! More than a few!
~Two Cuttlebugged cardstock quarters of every shade of green I own- and each is different so I have more Cuttlebug folders than I do shades of green x2
(a confusing clue!)
~ One Dozen green skeleton leaves
~ A small vial of Tim Holtz Distress Powder (Shabby Shutters Green)
~ Ribbon- 1 yd of True Thyme stitched grosgrain, 1 yd of Artichoke Organdy, and 1 yd of ruffled elasticized Green Galore Checkered.
~ A compartment of Green Embellishments- brads, eyelets, clips, etc
~A bag full of green buttons!

Have a FABULOUS Day!
Don't forget to leave your email address or last name.
Beginning comments were a bit confusing! If you can fix it to include a distinguishing detail if you're name is common, it may be a good idea.

Card Recipe~
ODBD We 3 Kings; Ink: Versamark; Paper: Artichoke, ODBD Prism Copper, basic Grey DP; Accessories: Copper EP (SU) & Winter Wonderland EP (Stampin Stuff), Decorative Brad (Spare Parts), SU Scalloped Border Punch, Martha Stewart Circle punch

How many shades of GREEN cardstock would you guess I own?

You're right, I like the combination of copper and artichoke too. Nice card!
