You can't pinch me!

     Everybody's Irish on St. Patty's Day!  :-)  Don't know if it was a practice where you're from, but if we don't have green on that day you're fair game to be pinched.  Youch!  This Irish lass won't have to worry about that.  :-)
     I have the honor of being asked by the wonderful DT Coordinators at Phindy's Friday Challenge to be their Guest Designer for this week's challenge.  Thank you so much ladies!
     Can you guess what the theme is?--- no not St. Patty's, although that fits for sure.  It's monochromatic green.  Now not long ago the thought of doing a monochromatic card would have scared me to death, but I've gotten a few of them under my belt now and they're not so bad.  :-)
     The image is called "Lots of Luck to You" and you can find it in Phindy's store along with lots of other great images.  Lots of green and a smidge of brown, red/orange, and gold on this card.  I've colored her with Copics and Prisma pencils.
     We'd love to have you come join us in this fun challenge at Phindy's Friday Challenge blog so create your monochromatic green card, whether it's for St. Patty's or not and come play!
     I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:
