Thinkin' Green for Spring!

It's so frustrating when you've spent your time creating your little works of art and then after you take your pictures...your camera doesn't cooperate for downloading!  Know you all have been there but it sure adds to the stress doesn't it!  I only have a small window in the evening to get everything done so of course the clock's a tickin' in my head.  Anyway, I don't mean to go off on a tangent :o)
The card tonight is done using the Mojo Sketch Challenge 233 turned on it's side. I used two mats separated as in the example and did a zig-zag stitch around each edge.  Stamped image is colored with copics and elevated with pop dots on a soft cream top notch die cut.  I fancy scalloped the edge of a coordinating paper strip and mounted a button cluster and satin ribbon on the side.  There's a similar mat inside with a Birthday verse stamped on it.

I would like to enter this in these challenges:
Mojo Sketch Challenge- sketch
Sweet Stampin' Challenge: anything green 

Thanks for looking and come back soon when you can stay for awhile!
