Combination "Green" Card

I made this "green" card in order to combine several challenges. I ussually try not to combine too many challenges but I loved how this one fit together!

The first challenge is on 365 cards #46. We were to make a matchbook card in celebration of Scor-It week. The tutorial I followed is HERE.

The second challenge was on Mommysavers. We were to create a card for Earth Day using either Earth Tones or Organic Items. I chose Earth Tones! I also used recycled cardboard :)

The third challenge was on Belli Challenges #63. We were to create something using dry embossing. I used one of the sheets of CB paper I got from Sara :)

The last challenge was on "Use It!". We were to use something out of our comfort zone (a matchbook card-never made one before), a hoarding item (all those CuttleBugged papers I have recieved from friends), a new favorite (those awesome brads I won on 365cards), heat embossing (the sentiment "wanna hug a tree with me?")

Here is my card:
FRONT:

CLOSEUP (see those cool brads?? you should see the others!!)

INSIDE:
