Joan's Touch Challenge #3 green and white

Good Morning Ladies,
I feel like I am back in the swing again. New challenges seem to help me get my craft on. I am a happy camper.
Today I have a card for Joan's Touch Challenge #3 green and white
This is the link to the challenge. http://joanstouch.blogspot.com/2014/03/this-weeks-challenge-3.html
The requirements this week are as follows:
Use an embossing folder
Use the colors Green and White
Use an oval
Must use something that can be purchased at Joan's Gardens http://www.atjoansgardens.com/
I just purchased new dies from Joan's so I knew straight away what die I was going to use for this challenge. So here is my entry....
The new die I purchased from Terri over at Joan's is the focal point of my card. It is by the Frantic Stamper Inc. Toutou the French Poodle. Die #FRA-DIE-09093. I am in love with this die and so happy I could use it in  a challenge right away! I used three layers of card stock on the card base. The top level is embossed with a Darice paw print embossing folder. It is inked with Brilliance Pearlescent Ivy ink. For my oval I used Spellbinders Classic Scalloped Ovals Large in the same three colors of card stock I used on the base card. These can be purchased from Joan's. I have a stash of silk flowers and dove into those and found white roses. Crystal sprigs were added underneath the roses. To top this card off I added a ribbon tie to the side. 
For the inside of the card I used a Cracker Box Palace sentiment.
Thanks for another great challenge Joan!
Happy Scraps,
Mrs. Swandog

Lori, what a darling card for a dog lover. Love all the details and that cute little poodle die. I haven't seen that embossing folder, either. Goes so beautifully with the theme of your card. Great job on this week's challenge at Joan's.

Blessings,
Ginny B
