Green Eggs...

Hello Everyone!

Just popping in for a second to show my card.

Betty at Simply B Stamps creates these pretty awesome stamps and often shares with us for free ;) but we have to use the image her monthly challenge. This month's challenge Betty and her partner in crime, Corinne Jones, gave us an option to use a male or female but we couldn't see the image yet... all we had to do is e-mail Corinne stating we wanted the image either in male or female form. I have so many female digis so this time I said male. LOL I so want to female version too but I'll save my pennies for that one and buy it later.
This past month challenge was held atSimply B Stamps Fan Group (It's a closed group so if you want to join just send her a message on facebook... lots of chit chat about everything...mostly joking around with our friend Corinne and sharing our work with each other... there are also fun swaps and tutorials.) Okay, this past month the challenge was "NO Pastels" using either Bunny Ears Judy or Bunny Ears Scott. You can find them here: They're on sale right now I just noticed ;)

Simply B Stamp digi stamp used: Bunny Ears Scott
This is for my brother David (he actually kind of looks like this digi LOL.) He just got back from New York and is going back soon. I found a joke online and thought it was perfect for him. 
"What do you call a city with 20 Millions Eggs?" 
Inside it reads: "New Yolk City!" 
LOL yes, kind of corny, I know... but it's all in fun.

I used only Greens and Warm Grays- All with Spectrum Noir markers
Used a Tim Holtz -brick wall embossing folder on core'dinations cardstock and distressed it with an emery board (nail file), the designer papers are from K & Company- Sheer Simplicity Green 

Sketch I used: I realized my panels got covered by the oval die after I glued it...
hopefully it doesn't disqualify.

All shades of GREEN (All neutrals (browns, blacks, whites, creams are okay to use) (#13)
