Mo's Digital Challenge #73 --- A Bit of Green

This week we will be observing St. Patrick's Day with the wearin' o' the green, so Mo's challenge this week is just that.... a bit of green.  I had posted a fun St. Patrick's Day card a couple of weeks ago using Mo's Little Irish Dancer which I will be mailing out tomorrow.  But I had this image posted and ready for just the right project.

This is "Paul Texting".  These days who doesn't know a teenager who is able to text on a keyboard smaller than a credit card, and faster than we ever could on a full sized typewriter/word processor/computer keyboard. (At least there is one constant, a "QWERTY" keyboard.)  I kept the card fairly simple with a Kraft cs card base, a scrap of lime green cs, and dp from Basic Grey.  The square brads are Spare Parts from The Paper Studio.  The sentiment is computer generated.

The image is colored with Copics.  I actually used a different style of coloring than my usual deep shadows and careful blending.  This is a bit more abstract and fun. I sort of like it.  Let me know what you think. 

Thanks for stopping by today! We have a lovely week ahead with longer daylight in the afternoon, thanks to daylight savings time.  And do take time to hop over to Mo's challenge to see the fabulous projects by the DT.  You will surely be inspired!

Hi Barb...it's always fun to see what new little creation you've come up with for Mo's challenge! This is so cute! I have to tell ya, I sent my 35 year old son a text the other day and he was shocked that I knew how to text! hehehe! I told him, "it's not exactly rocket science, ya know!". Kids!! I will admit to you (not to him) that it took me several minutes to text a short little message! hahaha! Your card is just adorable, Barb! I love the papers and Paul is beautifully colored! So glad you've joined us again this week for the "bit o' green" challenge! Hugs. Pat Frank
