Cute Card Thursday Challenge - "Lucky Green" Card

Todays card has been created for the Cute Card Thursday Challenge, "Lucky Green". Im not sure where my image comes from so I wont try and guess other than it might be one of the Greeting Farm stamps, but Ive had it awhile and I carnt be totally sure where it came from. The image has been coloured with my copic pens and then cut out with the Rectangle Nestabilitie dies, and then the mounts with the Scalloped edged ones. I can see that my sentiment is a little of centre so sorry about that.
The card is a 6"x 6" white card with mounts of dark green card, and the papers are from the new Papermania set of green papers. Ive used three papers, one strip, one polka dot and the other a square block one.
The embellishment is two buttons from my stash with some green cord threaded through and tied in a knot.

Hi Shirly

How clever to combine those different DP's so well, fantastic effect. And like the little button details to match his trousers.
