Serene In Green

Hello all, I'm a tad late with my inspiration for our new challenge today at Make My Monday with the theme chosen by teamie Joan which is The Colour Green so we'd like to see your creations with lots of green in.
It's a favourite colour of mine as I love the Distress ink Crushed Olive which I think is the one I like best of all so it had to come into my creation which I've made with the beautiful Aurora Wings Calla Lily Sprite image and I've turned her green to fit in.

I printed the image out on to my favourite paper for colouring in which is thick, smooth cartridge paper and I painted first with Aquamarkers then added more detail with pastel pencils which give such a lovel soft look.
I then trimmed the image to a panel and added mats of deep green and a little orange to tone in with the lily stamens.
I then took a piece of background paper lurking in my stash and altered it with Crushed Olive DI from the original pale sage green which didn't quite go with my image. I wrapped a piece of ribbon round before attaching it to my card blank.
I then painted a butterfly with Aquamarkers and added green dots with a pastel pencil before cutting out. I finished off with the Flonzcraft birthday sentiment (my favourite!) stamped directly on the background paper with Archival Fern Green ink.

I'd like to enter the following challenges:
