Sunday Post card Art

How fun would it be to start sending post cards again? :)  Love looking thru them in Vintage malls and stores.  Now that I am having fun learning and playing with art journaling so much , I decided to make a post card for the Sunday Post Card Art challenge: green.  Any medium is welcome, just use a 4x6 size.  There is some really cool stuff over there.  Here is mine:
I started by gesso-ing a 4x6 piece of cs then I used some sprays over some stencils (creative workshop/Julie Balzer designs).  I stamped "party dog" (Roc Nicholas /Stampotique) and paper pieced him.  The border is
"scalloped laced " image (same) .  I used my white uni-ball pen around the sunglasses and on the scalloped border.   Now, am I gona mail him??  Yes...not sure "to who" yet! :) lol   THIS is also for the following challenges:   "Use it Tuesday" #27= using what you hoard = BG scraps are ALL over my art room! :),  the C4C challenge blog= use greenSimon Says = "A bit O green"Daring Card Makers "lucky green",   AND  Catered Crop= use stitching (around the post card)   TFL!
