Framed in Green

This card just about set a record.  I made it early this morning, added it to my computer file, and took it to church so it could go with some items we are gifting to a person who has had some hard times - she is moving into a new (to her) apartment in a few days.  Now I see that the green in the frame really does not show on the screen - trust me, it is there!
I  used the Scrollwork Frame (Cuttlebug) sold at Joan's Gardens.  I also bought the leafy branch from Joan - not sure if it is still available.  I used the green ink pad to ink the frame before embossing - the same ink as for stamping the JustRite Fancy Tags.  The image is from A Day for Daisies - colored with Prismas.  I added a jewel - I seldom use them as they are bulky, but this card will not be mailed.
