Happy St. Patty's Day...

Is everyone wearing their green today? (pinch pinch) ;) My youngest has been counting down the days excited for Saint Patty's Day! Why? Because his teacher makes Irish Potatoes every year with the class. A chance to make sweet treats in school...yep thats reason to be excited! I sure hope she continues on the tradition this year or I'm going to be looking for an Irish Potatoe recipe, LOL!

We have reason to celebrate over at Lizzie Anne Designs too because not only is it St Patty's Day its also Design Team Challenge Day!!! I love these challenges! So much fun to see how everyone runs with the challenge! This months theme....GREEN!!! Be sure to stop by the Lizzie Anne Blog to check out all the awesome cards made from the rest of the Lizzie Anne Team and a chance to win the Hey Sunshine Mix!

Supplies Used:stamps: Lizzie Anne Designs (March Mix Lucky You, Card Quotations)

Instructions:

  1. Stamp the flower from the March Mix (Lucky You) three times and then punched circles out of the center. Ink edges in a pacific blue to give them some pop.
  2. The leaves were so simple to make, but I LOVE the effect. Cut a leaf out of scrap paper and use that as a stencil. With the Ranger blending tool ink over the stencil in green and a bit of blue.
  3. Adhere flowers on pop dots over the leaves.
  4. Stamp sentiment from Card Quotations on card front.
