I'm not a huge fan of green so I had a bit of a hard time pairing this new Mossy Meadow color. It is a rich deep shade of green though. So I started off by folding the card stock on the score line. I glued the DSP onto the Blackberry Bliss card stock. Next I used the Scallop Edge Border Punch on both long edges of the narrow strip of Whisper White card stock. I glued the Pool Party card stock onto the scalloped Whisper White then glued that layer onto the DSP. This layer was then glued onto the card front.

Next I used the Blackberry Bliss, Lost Lagoon, and Hello Honey markers directly on the stamp image from Work of Art. Then I took a Stampin' Spitzer with water and sprayed the stamp 4-5 times and stamped it onto the Watercolor Paper. Now don't freak out. At this point it looks pretty ugly. But go ahead and dry it with your Heat Tool and the colors will brighten up. Then use the Scallop Tag Topper Punch on both ends of the Watercolor Paper. Finally stamp the greeting on top of the watercolored brush stroke in Blackberry Bliss ink.
Run the Hello Honey ribbon through the tag ends of the watercolor paper. Then stick the tag shape onto the card front with Stampin' Dimensionals. Wrap the ribbon around the card front and tie the ribbon into a knot.

For the inside we once again have to add a piece of white for space to write a message. So I took the Zig-zag stamp from Work of Art and colored each lines in Blackberry Bliss, Lost Lagoon, and Hello Honey markers. Then spritz the stamp just like you did before then stamp the image from the bottom up three times. Then add the "Thank you" in Blackberry Bliss and Hello Honey ink.
Do you like working with this lovely new green?
