GOING GREEN for MOM!

You will rarely see my Mom without a cup of tea, either in her hand or within grabbing distance so this is going to be her Mother's day card.  She will be 89 years old and maybe all those antioxidants in her tea have something to do with her longevity.
I was playing with photoshop, trying to learn more about digital scrapbooking, and I did this to my photo. I thought it enhanced the vintage feel of the card. What do you think, do you like it clear or all warm and fuzzy?

This week's FARM FRESH FRIDAY CHALLENGE is honoring Earth Day by asking you to "go green".   Use the color green, recycled products, grass, whatever you feel GETS YOUR GREEN on!
My card used both the color green and a bit of recycled lace. I used the new digi, cutie-pie, HG-Classy which you can win this week by commenting HERE.  Come on guys, you look good in green so head over to TGF and show us your stuff!
Have a great weekend!
