Green and White card challenge

This card challenge was issued by Christie to do a card all in green and white. She gave us this gorgeous picture to inspire us. I thought that I definitely wanted to do something floral after seeing that picture, but Paper Pretties hasn't released much in the way of floral stamps yet. Than I remembered the little rose bouquet I did in the Sealed With a Kiss set! So I stamped the roses a bunch of times, cut them out, glued them together and made a big bouquet of roses!:-) Than I wanted a stripey green paper to use, but didn't have any. So I went into Illustrator and made my own! I like the way it came out, but I don't think I'll be doing that again, my hand was looking a little clawish after all that cutting!:-P This card will be going to Jillian as soon as I get her new address. I still have some more drawing to finish tonight, so it's back to work for me. Until tomorrow!

I can't imagine all that cutting! You must have the patience of a saint! It turned out beautifully! Oh, and don't worry, I haven't posted my 3 x 3 card yet! :)
