Crafty Gals March Challenge "Not Luck... Blessings"

Hello everyone!!!. New month, new challenge at my Crafty Gals Group. This time our leader Melina challenged us with this:


Okay, so this month we celebrate St. Patty's day. Well, some of us do. I never have gotten into it that much even though I have some Irish blood in me. I guess my thing is I don't believe in luck. I believe in blessings.  So, I love saying "Have a blessed day" when I'm out and about on St. Patty's Day! LOL!
So, my challenge for you is to create a project whatever you'd like, a card, scrap page, 3D item, etc....using these things:

1. 2 different shades of green.
2. Make the sentiment a "blessings" or "thankfulness" theme.
3. A Nature element somewhere on your creation. Examples: plant, sun, flower, grass, etc image and/or use patterned paper with plants, grass etc.....Any Natural element you can think of on your project.
I want you to really go "green" on this challenge!

And here is my card:

For this card I used:

Cardstock: Sahara Sand, Whisper White and Early Expresso from SU
Designer Paper: Lost and Found Christmas from My Mind's Eye
Stamps: Thoughts and Prayers and the sentiment is from the set Crosses of Hope both from SU
Ink: Chocolate chip and Old Olive from SU
Accessories: Oval and Oval scallop Spellbinders and sewing machine.

Thanks for looking!!!
