Our Daily Bread Go green, faux patina

Our fun challenge this week on Our Daily Bread is to go green, either in color or recycle something.  I used their darling cat sympathy set for this card and colored it with copics.  The beaded oval was embossed and then cut and I used walnut distressed ink with a gold pen to edge it.  The background on this card is the faux patina technique from the resources on Split Coast Stampers.  My gold embossing is not showing up very well but it's there and gives the old patina look to the card.  Spellbinders fancy tag for the saying and I gold edged it also. Added a few Martha Stewart butterflies to finish the card.  Be sure to check out the wonderful creations on ODBD for some inspiration.
