Happy St. Patrick's Day



Hello everyone and Happy Tuesday and Happy St. Patrick's Day :):):) Today is Tuesday, which means another challenge day over at Susana's store blog, Follow Your Heart. Suzanne Dean, our DT leader, does a great job of coming up with challenges for us every week. Our challenge this week was to create a St. Patrick's Day inspired card using any of the stamps Susana carries in her store as well as shades of green and one neutral. I love challenges like this one because they really allow me to think outside the box and get multiple uses out of my stamps.

For this challenge, I decided to ink up this gorgeous fairy stamp, Sassafras. I colored her with my copics, added green rhinestones to the centers of the flowers in her hair, and added Stickles to her wings. I used my circle nesties to cut her out. My cardstock and design paper is from SU. I used my SU ticket corner punch on the corners and added green rhinestones. The sentiment is from a $1 Studio G set from Michael's. For a finishing touch, I added glittery foam shamrock stickers (from Michael's) and a white ribbon to the card.

I'd love to hear what you think of my card. Make sure to check out the store blog, Follow Your Heart, to see what the other wonderful DT members have created this week. We'd also love for you to join in on these challenges. If you do join in, and upload your photos to SCS or PCP, make sure to put tiot10 in the keywords section. Thanks so much for stopping by. Hope you have a wonderful St. Patrick's Day :):):)

Hugs, Christine :)
