Trendy Twine March Challenge~ Going Green

Good Morning
Welcome to our March Challenge
Our Twine of the Month is Twisted Lime!
~a perfect match of Light Green & Dark Green Bakers Twine~
And our challenge for this month is:
We want to see your
 St. Patrick's Day projects w/
  ~a clover or leprechaun
 monochromatic green (shades of green)
Trendy Twine. 

**If you do not have Trendy Twine,
use hemp, jute, or embroidery thread only
(no other brands of bakers twine)**

Or even better yet... head over to the store HERE
~to pick up a roll of Twisted Lime~
 it's on sale for $7.95

Go Green Mini Pack for $5.50

Now onto my project.....
I am actually pretty proud of myself....I remembered this awesome slider card that my SUPER creative friend Cindy made and I bookmarked it for a later date...well today was that date :)
So here is my take on her slider card.....
Since the challenge is monochromatic green I used Bazzill Easter Grass cardstock along with some green pattern paper I found in my stash. Following Cindy's tutorial (which made this SO easy to put together) I embellished very simply with a shamrock die cut, my sentiment some 3GJ crinkle ribbon and of course this month AWESOME color of Trendy Twine in Twisted Lime

So I hope you like my slider card! I know I will be making many more of these!!!!

Now don't forget to check out what the rest of the Design Team has created today
