Sweet Stamps Happy St Patty's Day

 Today our challenge at Sweet Stamps blog is to create a St. Patrick's Day project/card. This is an awesome challenge, we want to see what you come up with for this theme. Can't wait to see what you all can come up with, but be sure to use a Sweet Stamps stamp....

Anyone can enter, but if you use a Sweet Stamps rubber stamp you get two entries into the challenge for a chance to win a $20 shopping spree. Visit the design team blog and you will see what everyone on the Design team has done.


Here is my creation:

I used the "Sweet Stamps Clover Circle Silhouette" and the "Happy St. Patrick's" sentiment on my card today. I stamped the Clover Circle first using Shades Dye ink in Forest Greens color and then I stamped the sentiment using the same color inside of the Clover Circle.  I used a circle die to cut out my image.  I wanted a bit of sparkle to the stamped image, so I dug out my Spica Glitter Pens.  I used my olive spica glitter pen and went over the clovers and the capital letters in my sentiment to give it a bit of sparkle. Next I decided that I wanted to have some sort of mat  behind my cut out image, but nothing I had really worked.  So I used the Cherry Lynn Lace Light Deco Border and cut the border apart and layered each piece behind my cut out image to create a double frame around my image. I finished off with some ribbon, some pearls and a pearl brad for my bow.

I even decided to finish the inside of my card.  Here is what that looks like:
I used the same techniques for the inside that I did for the front of the card.  Hope you have enjoyed your visit here to my blog today.......
