Happy St. Patrick's Day...!

Happy St. Patty's Day everyone! I made this little card today to celebrate the 'wearing o' the green' and for Scrap-Creations challenge GGSC2 ... which is to use Basic Grey paper and create a St. Patty's card. I used my BG 'lemonade'.  I started with a white base and added a garden green layer which had been run through the Cuttlebug using my new Sizzix embossing folder 'Damask' from the Medallions, Frame & Damask set. I used this adorable image by Elisabeth Bell named "Bunnie"... I know, I've used it a lot... but I adore her!  I thought she'd be appropriate for St. Patrick's Day, especially in her little green dress!   My sentiment "Emerald Blessings" is a free digital stamp set from Waltzingmouse Stamps. Thanks so much Claire!!!

I cut my two pieces of  Basic Grey lemonade with my Spellbinders labels 1 dies and layered them.  After coloring Bunnie with Copic Sketch markers, I cut her out using my Spellbinders nestabilities large scallop ovals and, while still in the die, used a dauber and pretty in pink ink to sponge around the edges.  I used 2 flower punches from SU! to make the little pink flower and my Martha Stewart butterfly punch for the center.  The lime-colored leaves around the flower are actually bath confetti made by Studio 18... I thought they were felt and don't even remember when I bought them... anyway, the card sure smells nice LOL.  The ribbon is from JoAnn's and the pink button is another MS punch.  A few dabs of yellow stickles and she was done.

Have a happy day and thanks for looking in!
