Go Green

Once again it's time for the MFT Guest Designer Challenge.  I give it a try every month, who knows, maybe this month I'll be lucky.  The challenge is to use a neutral with red and/or blue.  I chose to use a kraft card base and I paper pieced the bags with it, seems to be the right choice for a bag.  Before I laid down the bag from the "New
Army" store I placed a tiny piece of tissue paper underneath it.  I love that idea, and if I could remember whose idea it was I'd give her credit.  My buddy Eileen set me a link to it awhile ago.  She faithfully comments on my cards, so maybe she'll remember who it is and give her credit in her comment.  Her outfit is paper pieced with dp from the Cosmo Cricket "Garden Variety" pad.  The rest of the image is colored with copics. 
For me this is a clean and simple card.  I know that some stampers wouldn't think so but by my standards it is.  There's no dimensionals popping up multiple layers, no bling unless you count the "credit card" charm as bling.  
Here's the deets:
stamp - My Favorite Things "WTG Goes Green"
ink - Brilliance graphite
paper - Cosmo Cricket Garden Variety dp, SU kraft cs
miscellaneous - charm, twine, SU corner punch, tissue paper
Here's the challenges:
