'Toucan' Play at That Game!!!

Eyes Roll!!!! Yes, a poor attempt at a joke, but hey, what d'you expect for a Monday!! Lol!

As I was doing a little blog-hopping this morning, I realised it had been a while since I joined in with a challenge over at THE PAPER SHELTER, so, despite the long list of 'must-do' tasks, I set about putting that right! I also had a look for a sketch to follow, and found this one #65 from Sunday Sketch & Stamp.

The theme at The Paper Shelter this week is #23 the colour Green. Here's my card:
I have used the fab image from TPS called 'Tucan.' My papers are digital...from a range of sources. The digi stamp is pre-coloured, sponged over with green ink and cut out with a nestie.

Where the bunting hangs on the sketch, I have created my own style of bunting, made from leaves! I hand-cut each one, and edged in ink, then hung them from a piece of garden twine, attached with green paperclips each side.
The sentiment is a die-cut one from Craftworks and reads 'May all Your Wishes Come True.'
The whole card is actually much GREENER than it appears in ther photos.....Not sure why but I just couldn't get the lighting right for this one :-/

I am entering the following challenges:
Thanks for popping in, I do love it when I get visitors!!
