Shirley's 2 Girls Green Challenge

Nothing like waiting til the last minute! The deadline for the Shirley's 2 Girls green challenge - read the details HERE! - is in less than two hours, so I figured I better get my project made and uploaded. My friend Karolyn - read her blog HERE! - is on the S2G design team, and she pointed me in the direction of the challenge. She also helped me with the dimensions for this little box. The challenge was to make a box and use a green theme.
I needed a little "Good Luck" gift/card for someone I know who is embarking on a new adventure. I was also inspired by this fun St. Patty's Day paper I found in my LSS. I don't have any S2G stamps yet - one reason I wanted to try the challenge! - so I used an SU sentiment and a heart punch from Creative Memories for my main image. Inside is a Starbucks card - you can always need a boost when you're embarking on something new - and a bunch more punched hearts in two sizes. The metallic hearts are using the Mirri paper from Marco Paper. I won mine in a blog contest by Sharon Johnson/Notimetostamp.
Stamps: Sincere Salutations
Ink: glorious green marker and ink pad
Paper: glorious green, neenah classic crest white, Marco mirri green, DP is by Reminisce
Accessories: ribbon, slot punch, CM heart punch
