Challenge #87 - Using Green for St Patrick's Day


using this sketch

Supplies used:
  • Pot of Gold image
  • Prismacolor Art Markers
  • Cardstock and design paper from stash
  • scalloped edge punch
  • Green gemstones to highlight card
  • Green shamrocks cut out using my Silhouette Cameo
  • adhesive
  • sentiment found on the SilhouetteAmerica Online Store
Actually this was my 2nd attempt with creating this card.  The first design was a sunburst background but cutting the second time did not go well, so I found this sketch on - a listing of challenges/winners and decided to use it.  I will be using sketches in my card/scrapbook page layouts as it gives me a form of organization - to have a sketch to work from/with.

Thank you for stopping by to visit with me today, and head on over to Pattie's Creations Designs Challenge and play along with us in Challenge #87.

It certainly is going to be someone's lucky day when they receive this card. I really like how you've done the shamrocks. Very cool.
