St. Patty's Day Card

I don't normally do anything for St. Patty's Day, and I don't really even care for green, but I guess I got caught up in it this year. I made this card for a couple of challenges.
I used some old Little Yellow Bicycle papers, a ribbon from a william's and sonoma gift box (that I have had since my wedding shower!), and a couple of Joy's Life stamps. (I used the happy from the everyday occasions and the rest is from the holiday occasions.)
The card was featured on the paper issues blog!
This is for the Really Reasonable Ribbon monochromatic green challenge. It is also for the Create blog St. Patty's day challenge.  Also the papertake weekly anything goes challenge, the creative inspirations green and white challenge, the charisma cardz ribbon challenge, the do you stack up green challenge, the phindy's place monochromatic green challenge, the pile it on green challenge, and the simon says stamp and show anything goes challenge.  wow, there were a lot of green challenges this week - hence the me getting caught up in the challenge thing, I just couldn't keep ignoring it. Also, since I am generally so bad at green, I thought it was a good REAL challenge for me! I really like how this turned out.
