YUP! its that ugly Grinch Green!! and I found some DP to go with it!!
This card - and another to thank Dave for his service to our country - went out late, but will reach him in time for Christmas, since he only lives a short distance from me in Philadelphia. Dave could use some cheering up for the holidays, so the tea potters have sent cards to make him smile. See his story HERE
I cut out the thinlit die for the card, by sliding the end that would normally be cut off, above the end of the die, which gave me an extra fold-over part to my card. Added the panels of DP, tied a ribbon around the front one, and printed up my sentiments on the computer in green. Next, made the punch art Grinch, using the curly label punch for his head, the pennant punch for his hat, one of the owl punch feet for his nose, the 1/2" circle for his eyes, and a retired mini flower punch for the tassel on his hat. Added these on top of the white and scalloped red circle for inside .
The inside says, "you bet your sweet BIPPY, I am", and then on the other side, says, "Merry Christmas from the one and only GRINCH! Hope this makes Dave laugh and gives him a grin on his face. To see the inside, go HERE
So, late to upload, but still made in time for Christmas!
Thanks for looking and have a wonderful Christmas, Everyone!!

I love how you added on to the card to get an extra fold over. I have a flip card that I think I need to try to add the extra flap when I use it. Your card is so cute and I am pretty sure it is not an ugly grinch green. :) LOL! Very well done.
