It's time for another 'All things Unity" post and challenge

It's time for our second inspirational challenge at the 'All Things Unity' blog and we are going green! I have to say it was so much fun going to all the artist's cards who played along with us on our first challenge. I finally finished up seeing all of them and they were great!

To go green on this card I used a scrap card base I had kicking around and all kinds of American Crafts paper scraps I cut into thin strips and randomly glued along the front of the card. I played with this sweet Unity butterfly stamp and used Old Olive ink to match the paper and cardstock - well pretty darn close anyway lol! I usually colour when I stamp but sometimes it is so fun (and fast) to just ink- stamp- and go! when making a card. It's simple but nice and full of springiness I think...I also think I may  have just made up a new word. Pass it on.
Here is the challenge if you wish to play along:
Going Green -
By going green you can do it by three ways
You can make your project green
You can use recycled materials in your project
You can use only scraps in your project
Or you can be truly adventurous all do all the above!!
Show us your Green side

I love the colours in this card!! Very pretty!! We just did one last night to show how you can use some scraps up. I love how the different strips look together.
