Green with Envy Challenge Card

After having yesterday off from work, today seems like a Monday. We really need more of those 3 day weekends. It's a travel week for me which means I will be traveling the rest of the week. Going south to San Antonio. Hope I find time to seek out a scrapbook store. If anyone knows of a good one near the river walk, please let me know.

Little Scrap Pieces has a "green" challenge going this week. Here is what I came up with.
This card really  makes me think of spring even though we had 3 inches of snow last night.
Looks like this snail would love to be able to fly...

Here's How I did it...
Standard A2 base card
Cloud and green papers for snail shell printed on my Imagine from Hopscotch cartridge
Snail/layers cut at 3.5" from Nate's ABCs
Mat cut to size on my Gypsy from Lacy Labels
Sentiment from BugBites All Year Round stamp set
Twine from My Mind's Eye

I love your card. The snail is toooo cute!;0)
When we were stationed at Lackland there was a place called Scrapbook Heaven, BUT that was 2002...I think they moved around Bandera and 1604. Are you traveling through Austin? They have an Archiver's and they are having a sale this week!:0)
Have fun in San Antonio:)
