Jump for Joy!

I recently donated a big box of cards to a local charity...so I'm in the process of building up my stocks again...so I've been trying to make cards for a variety of occasions...this one is a 'Good Luck' card. I followed the sketch from Paper Sundaes...and have also managed to include some other challenge themes too...but as there's quite a few, I'll list them at the end of this post. The image is 'Jump for Joy' (by Penny Black), and the papers are all form the '29th Street Market' collection by My Mind's Eye. I used my trusty 'Swiss Dots' folder on the plain green paper, and distressed all of the edges, before adding some faux stitching. The flower is by Prima, and the sentiment stamp was a freebie with a DOcrafts mag...although it did originally have a frame around it, but I didn't like that, so cut it off! lol

The other challenges that I'm entering this card for are:

Cute Card Thursday: 'Lucky Green!'
Cuttlebug Spot: 'Green' (I hope there's enough green on here!)
Pile It On: 'Lucky Me'
Pink Elephant: 'Add Green to Your Colour Combo'
Pollycraft Monday: 'Distressing'
Stampavie & More: 'Spring'
