Springtime Greens

With St.Patrick's Day coming up there's a few green challenges about and I combined two of them today with this card: Crafty Sentiments Challenge and The Ribbon Girl's March Colour Challenge both want you to use lots of green and I am also entering this card in Totally Gorjuss' Challenge #227 to make a thank you card. Now green isn't a colour I'm particularly fond of as a main colour, but I chose two softer greens and really like this colour combo!

And here's my card...
