A Card for Aurora Wings "Shades of Green" Facebook Challenge

Good Morning Crafters, well its a really beautiful start here in Gloucestershire the sun is out and although its a bit chilly its dry and looking good, hubby is trying to dry out his shed so lets hope the weather stays that way and starts to do its job.
Anyway todays card was created for this months "Shades of Green" Challenge and for this I have used Mermaid with ribbons and I printed her onto white card and coloured her with my copic pens, afterwards I used Nestabilitie Labels Die No.4 to cut her out and a fancy one for the mount out of green pearlescent card.
The main card is a 7"x 7" white card and the first mount is again of the same green pearlescent card, and the papers are from Sweetshoppes "Cool Colours" digi paper set. I have used four papers of different shades of green, and with three of them I have reduced the size and used a Martha Stewart border punch on them and layered them up across the middle, then wrapped two ribbons around the middle and attached them to the back of the first mount.
This Card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
