'Green' birthday card

In trying to get some cards made in advance of when I need them - rather than the usual last minute rush - here is a simple birthday card combining challenges Sunday Sketch and Stamp #87 and ABC challenges 'G for Green'.
Une carte d'anniversaire, tout simple et rapide: L'image, tamponné avec Archival Sepia, et coloré avec l'encre Distress et un pinceau avec le réservoir d'eau, et découpé avec les Nestabilities. J'ai utilisé les chutes des papiers et du Bazzill sur une carte kraft créé avec le papier recyclé: Tous vert - le couleur, et pour la planète!

I used a couple of old stamps (PaperMania), coloured the image with Distress Inks (Shabby Shutters, Frayed Burlap, Tattered Rose and Stormy Sky) and a water-filled brush then cut it out with Nestabilities Curved Rectangles and edged it with Vintage Photo Distress Ink. I mounted this, with a few scraps of paper and embossed Bazzill card, on to a kraft card blank (made using recycled paper so it's 'green' in more that sense too) and added a few green pearls.
