March GREEN Challenge by Penny

Here is another GREEN layout from Guest Design Team Member Penny.

Here is the supply list:

Title: Buddy wants his tractor to be John Deere Green

Journaling reads:

After push mowing our yard for years, no one was happier than Buddy to finally get a riding mower.

1 1/2- sheets yellow cardstock,
1 1/2 - sheets of green cardstock
Creative Imagination - Heritage logos #2692708211 (this is the John Deere stickers
2" Marvy Uncida punch - this was the large circle inside the large tire on the die cut
1" McGill circle punch - this is the small circle inside the smaller tire on the die cut
Tractor die cut - green
Tractor eyelet - Eyelet Outlet
Making Memories - Little Letter stickers green - 16025
Garden plant stake - this is really for marking where you plant items in your garden
Assorted brads
2 - yellow buttons, one large, one small
White thread and needle
Wrights rick rack - 116402 Emerald green 44
Black sharpie marker
Black Gel pen
Lawn mower sticker -- unknown, but I think I took it from a children's coloring book
4 leather photo corners - Making Memories

I usually don't paper piece much but the secret to this tractor die cut, is that all the black areas on this die cut, were actually colored with a black Sharpie marker, and not paper pieced. The yellow pieces are yellow cardstock. If you try this on your own be sure to color the die cut BEFORE gluing it on your layout.

Now it's your turn to take the March GREEN Challenge. The March Challenge is anything to do with GREEN. It could be a project using the color Green, or about being "green" - or you could use the word Green in your title. The possibilities are endless. Anything goes! So think GREEN and take the challenge. To participate in the March GREEN Challenge - just email a picture of your project along with a description to

All submissions will be posted to The Scrap Our Stash blog and on March 31st a winner will be chosen, and given the opportunity to be a Guest Design Team Member for the month of May. This challenge ends at midnight central time on March 31st.
