CYP Monday

Welcome to Our Monday CYP Challenge This weeks Challenge is a Color Challenge.
You want to uses Shades of Green and Purple:)

My project was made a special card it will actually be going to a special little girl. A designer designed the stamp I used for her to be used by artist to make cards for her. She is very sick and all she wanted was to get cards from people. So he made a stamp set and is giving it away to those that will send a card to the girl. I have the info on my messy art desk and when I find it I will post a link. Until then I hope you enjoy my project.
