I'm not sure I mentioned it here in my blog, but about a month ago I joined another blog group, the Crafty Gals. You have probably noticed the blog roll in my left sidebar, with links to their blogs. I am so excited to be part of this group for a multitude of reasons. One of my favorite things about the Crafty Gals is that on the 5th of each month, we have a Blog Hop, with one of the gals giving the guidelines for that month's hop.

Melina was the hostess this month. She gave us three guidelines:

1. Include 2 different shades of green
2. Make the sentiment a "blessings" or "thankfulness" theme
3. Add a nature element somewhere on our creation

Here's my card:

I went with a CAS look. I actually kind of like it. I think rounding just one corner of the card added quite a bit to the design, too.

Be sure to go check out the other Crafty Gals Blogs! I'm sure they've created some gorgeously green projects!
