Impression Obsession DT Challenge: Shades of Green

The Impression Obsession team's challenge today is to create a card that features any shade of the color green.

I pulled some teals into the background panels and twine on this card - love the contrast with the red-orange of the bouncy toy! I had one of those a hundred years ago... sigh... These are new stamps - Betsy on Ball and You're a Sweetie. The sentiment is stamped on a Mini Rectangle Tag. I colored the image with Touch Twin Markers.

The fun thing about this card is that that bouncy ball actually 'bounces' - I finally found my Action Wobbles after several months of searching ON MY DESK, and thought it would be fun to add some dimension and motion to this image. If you've never seen Action Wobbles, they're like a plastic spring with adhesive panels on both ends - those can be trimmed to fit your raised panel or piece. Boiiinnng!!
