Dreamweaver's Thursday's Dream Schemes/This month's challenge is green

This month we are challenging our readers to Go Green or Go Braugh in celebration of the upcoming month of March. So here is my card for Dreamweaver's challenge;
I started off using Old Olive paper by Stampin'Up and cut it down to 5"x 7" size. I used papers from the Butterfly Collection by Pink Paislee for the next two layers. I added some crochet lace by May Arts and then used Pear Pizzazz 5/8ths Pleated Satin Ribbon before attaching to the base. I than ran the 3rd layer thru an embossing folder by Teresa Collins called 'Timeless'.  I then used Lime & Olive Pastel Fluid Chalk by Clearsnap over the raised areas. I stamped 'Happy St. Patrick's Day' by Stampin'Up set called 'Teeny Tiny Wishes' using black pigment ink and black EP.  I used the stencil LL3017 Cameo that I received in last month's challenge for the picture. I used glossy black embossing paste while it was still wet I sprinkled on some transparent ultrafine green glitter by In The Making Enterprises. I cut this out using a large scallop punch by Marvy Uchida and then cut out another light green glitter scallop oval using a giga punch. For the leaves I used Tim Holtz 'Tattered Pinecone' using light green and dark green glitter paper. For the two corners I used the stencil LJ885 'Leaf Corners' and using  double sided tape and some olive soap. After soaping my stencil, I laid it down on double sided tape which then laid it down on the acetate. Then I applied a light green glitter called 'Granny Smith' and then a darker one called 'Moss Green' using a straw and so called painted my leaves with this technique.
