Luck O'

Luck O' - It is time for another challenge at Alphabet Challenge Blog. This fortnight we are on C - for Celebrate St Patrick's Day!

St Patrick's Day is just around corner. I hope none of you have your pincers out. LOL

For my card, I used a new designer paper pack by DCWV. It is called Painted Petals and it has the most yummy colors in it. I have used the green and yellow palette today. I love that the green has some blue-greens in it. I inked the edges with Iced Spruce distressed ink. It is difficult to see.

My image is Saturated Canary's, Nevaeh. Something about her pose made me think about an Irish river dancer. Nevaeh is colored with Copics and I added a tiny bit of Stickles to her dress to represent little beads that would catch the light as she danced. The image is cut and embossed with a Spellbinders.
My ribbon is from my stash, as is the shamrock. My sentiment is Paper Studio. If you are a follower of mine, then you know that I have really been into stick pins lately, so you will not be surprised that I have used another stick pin. I get a lot of my stick pin supplies from Judy at Pizzazz Aplenty. Judy is having knee replacement surgery and I hope everything went well for her. Her prices are unbelievable, so give her a little bit of time to heal, then shop her store! And of course, please join us at Alphabet Challenge Blog in our Celebration of St Patrick's day!
