Happy St Patrick's Day

Hi everyone,

Hope you have all had a great weekend, almost over for me now but i did get one of my challenge cards finished and pretty timely too considering it is for St Patrick's Day.

For this card i wanted to combine a couple of challenges and one was a sketch challenge. I had a look at the sketch and got an idea what i wanted to do. Green is not a common colour for me to use so i didn't really have anything and i knew i would need several patterned papers to complete the sketch. So i went on good old Google to see what digital papers were out there. I found some for free online via the following blog which was a real added bonus Starynight.

I have been eyeing up the digital stamps from Sassy Studio Designs and finally purchased some and one was their St Patrick's Day image, its a great fun image and i really enjoyed colouring it. I didn't want to overload the card with green so i coloured the drink as Guinness in good old fashioned brown.

The sentiment i typed up on my computer, had a play around with the text size and font and them cut out using Spellbinders Dies.

Hope you like my card
