PTT 111 - Luck of the Irish

Good Morning Friends!

Another green post for you today!  So have you gotten the green out of the closet yet?  Today we are celebrating St. Patrick's Day at Party Time Tuesdays!  The challenge - Luck of the Irish.

We have three fabulous sponsors this week.

So I created a card using Saint Patty Owen generously provided by The Paper Nest Dolls.  I printed the digi out on cryogen paper and colored him with copics.  I choose to go a bit darker than your normal St. Patty green and added dark violet instead of black.  I cut and matted the image using Spellbinders Labels 23.  The papers were kindly provided by our sponsor, The Robin's Nest.  I matted all the layers and added some twine with a shamrock attached.

Copics used:
E000, E00, E21, E44, BV20, BV25, BV29, G24, G85, Y28, YG93, YG95, YG97, W5, W2

The inside sentiment is Irish Blessing 2 by High Hopes stamps.  It makes me giggle every time I read it.  I also adorned the inside with papers and rubon's by The Robin's Nest.  The punched edge was done with an EK Success punch.

Ok, so let's see your Irish spirit!  Come on over to Party Time Tuesdays and share with us for a chance to win some awesome prizes from our sponsors!
