Let's green this place up

We finally got a hint of spring yesterday. the temperatures were the warmest they have been in months, and a few of my crocuses are blooming.  It seemed like it was time to starting thinking about spring, which brings me to green.

This card was inspired by Deepti's card on the Stamplorations blog site. I've used this technique before of cutting strips in various shades of a color, stamping an image on them, them mounting them.  The fabulous image is from Impression-Obsession; I walked by their booth at a stamp show and this image just jumped out at me. I knew there was no way I could leave the hall without buying it.

The musical notes are from die I got at the same show -- the brand is Poppy. (The packaging looks the same as Memory Box, not sure why they would change the name.)

    Poppy dies are made by the same company! The soroy I heard was that the owner of MB set up Poppy for his offspring - maybe setting them up for a future in business?
