Digi Haven DT Card - Use at Least Three Different Shades of Green

We have a colour challenge for you at Digi Haven this fortnight, we'd like you to use at least three different shades of green.  We're sponsored this time by Beccy's Place, I've used one of her wonderful freebies for my card, you'll find it here if you want to download it yourself.
 The image has been coloured with Pro and Flexmarkers, it's just perfect for a first birthday, this card is for a friend's son, Ebyn, I can't believe he's a year old already.  I fussy cut the image so I could raise it up on foam pads for dimension, the die cut oval and sentiment are raised up too.
The patterned papers are are from two different packs, one Papermania, the other DCWV, the plaid background I created with a lovely Embossalicious embossing folder.  The sentiment is from Craftwork Cards and the letter stickers for the name are Papermania.
To embellish, I added grosgrain ribbon layered over satin ribbon, a large bow, and some buttons threaded with baker's twine.
 I'm entering this card in the following challenges -
