Digital Tuesday #3 Celebrate Earth Day

Hello and happy tuesday, it is time for another fun digital tuesday challenge over on the Digital Tuesday Challenge blog.
Since tomorrow is earth day, I thought it would be fun to have a "earthy" color challenge. Use brown and green, and another one color of your choice. (You may also use white or vanilla as your neutral).
For my card I used the image Susie watering flowers from the Digital Stamp Oasis. I colored it with copics. The sentiment is from SU's Upsy Daisy set. Besides green and brown I chose pink as my third color.
The green designer paper is from SU (retired), and the pink polka dot paper is from Hobby Lobby. Sorry, I don't remember who makes it. I embellished with prima flowers and pearls, a swirl from a sizzix die and stickles. I also decided to do some stitching along the outer edges. Thanks so much for visiting my blog today, and be sure to visit the Digital Tuesday Challenge Blog to see some more great card samples from the brand new Design Team and play along for a chance to win Digital Stamp Oasis Images.

Hi Ellie!

Completely forgot to tell you how much I loved your challenge card. The colors (and your coloring) are just wonderful. I'm definitely studying how you've colored the adorable Susie!

This is gorgeous Ellie. Love that swirls you use. I have been trying to find a swirl die or punch for ages but I still don't have one. The ones I use someone cut me on their cricut and I only have a couple left!
I think I will have to go find that Sizzix one on the internet now, do you know where I could get one?
