Green for Go!!! with the Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge

Good morning to you all in the land of blog
Today sees the next challenge at the 


with the theme this week chosen by little old me and I chose, as it is nearly St. Patty's Day

Green for Go!!!!!

we are sponsored this week by the amazing 
who are offering the winner a £10 voucher

Now as I don't celebrate St. Patty's day I decided to go for total mono green, well except the hair and skin of course, so here is my inspirational piece, although do pop over and see the rest of the team's fabulous eye candy.
The base layer is a deep mossy green and the papers are Papermania Capsule Collection Mono in the green. The image is "To Catch a Big Fish" by Sugar Nellie.  The pearls are from the Hobby House the floral leaves from a new die set from Grimsby Crafts, distressed TH olive green Wild Orchid flowers the sentiment is from Grimsby Crafts and it is sat on a Memory Box beautiful die. The fishing net is made, please see my tutorial here.

Here is a close up of the image coloured in copics
