So Lucky!

Evening, well I have to say I really didn't think I would be on this much of a roll today, It appears that taking some time out to blog is making me much more productive! I dread to think how many creations I haven't shared with you :( 

Anyway I'm back today with a bit of a different creation for me, well its still a card, but its a bit 'green'….


When linking up to some challenges yesterday I saw that there are many 'green' themes out there at the moment, and so I thought it would do me some good to make a card with lots of green! I have used the adorable Shamrock Ellie Rubber Stamp from The Paper Nest Dolls


Sh was coloured with Copics; 

Skin and Hair;
E50, E51, E21, E93
E33, E35, E37

Greens and Greys;
G40, G43, G46, 
YG03, YG17, YG67
T1, T2, T3

I didn't really know what sort of green to go with and so I chose to colour with lighter colours and then take the matting paper to the darker green.  The flowers are from my stash, mostly Wild Orchid Crafts, the shamrock banner, the tiny shamrocks in the flowers and the 'Lucky' were cut on my cameo.  I added a little bit of ribbon from my stash around one of the layers - If I'm right I think it was an SU one!

 Now although the card is very 'St Patricks Day' I'm sending it to someone that has done so much to help someone in my life recently as I am lucky for all they have done :)

I would like to enter this card to the following challenges; 

Marker Pop - CH #38 - Lucky Green
Di's Digi Designs - Make it Green
Open Minded Challenges - Something Green
Really Reasonable Ribbon - Green and Ribbon 

Thanks so much for stopping by, I do hope if you have a moment you will leave me a comment :) Hope to see you again soon
