Green Tilda

My dd was home from college last week and I didn't get too much stamping done but I'm trying to get some things done even though I'm not feeling particularly well. Not sure what the problem is.  Any way you don't want to hear about my troubles. 
This first card I did for the challenge at Magnolia-licious Challenge here. The card is supposed to be green. I colored Tilda with mint greens. Do you know how hard it is to find dp in mint green? At least in my stash. My greens seem to be mostly lime greens. 

The heart was cut out of felt using nestabilities. I wasn't sure if my felt could be cut with them as it is a little thicker but it worked just fine. I put dots using copics around the edge of the heart. It just seemed to be too plain. I cut slits in the heart to thread the ribbon through and tie it. I used stickles around the dark edges of the dress and the white shoes. Over the shoes I put diamond glaze. The dp is basic grey from the blush collection.

Here is another card I just finished.

I just love these winged angels from Bildmalarna. I paper pieced the dress. I had colored it first and didn't like the combination so I found a dp that would go with it. The flower is done with dies from my favorite things that can be gotten here. But I just looked and didn't see this one but they have lots of other cool dies.

Have a great day.

Peggie these are both adorable and I love how you used the mint greens! Your dp is gorgeous and the felt heart with the ribbon is a delight. Hope you're feeling better soon.

Well first of all Peggy - I love your felt heart - gives me all kinds of ideas. Pretty card. Now to the little Bildmalarna - how cute is that and your layout is very attractive to say the least. I really like the way you did those ribbons too!

Very pretty! I love mint green and have a hard time finding paper and RIBBONS...I went to 3 stores before I found ribbon (of course, not finding it at the first two didn't stop me from finding other things!). Hope you feel better soon!

Peggie, both of your cards are so pretty! I can relate with you about the "green" part. It's not an easy color to color with! But you did a fantastic job with your Tilda!
