This is one of those sites where you just don't know which stamp to choose, they are all so cute!  It was hard, but I decided to go with this cute little girl cause I love her shy demeanor, and all that hair!!  Her name is Bashful Buttons & Bows Boo:

I chose to go with a green theme.  I love me some green.  I know a lot of people would grab the pinks, purples, reds or grays, well for me it's green.  I think it's a color that doesn't get a lot of love and there are so many cool shades of it.  Here are the layers: Tsumugi Hiwa cardstock (Although it looks like white or ivory that color is actually a little more celery green when you get to the center of the celery stalk (hahaha, sorry that's all I could think of to compare the color to)), green patterned paper from DCWV Emerald Garden stack, sheer green polka dot ribbon, green button, green/silver floss, Sizzix Thinlit doily die with Tsumugi Hiwa cs, dark green felt rosette (CC Cutters) & green burlap leaves. Little Miss BBB Boo is colored with Copics and her buttons have diamond glaze on them.

Alrighty, hope you'll make some time to play, you've got the next two weeks.  For all the challenge rules click HERE.  Thanks so much for stopping by today.  Have a terrific Aloha Friday!
