HAPPY ST. PATRICK'S DAY !!!!

Woo Hoo !! Today is the day for a fun blog hop to celebrate the release of the NEW ELISABETH BELL SAMPLER EDITION #3 for SCACD. Just wait till you see these cuties, you will want them all. This image is "IRISH EYES".


I know St. Patrick's Day isn't until next month, but I wanted to get an early start. She is colored with Copics and the pink on her vest and cuffs are enhanced with a NEW product called SMOOCH ILLUMINATE!! This is the first time I have used this product. I tell ya, I am in love with it. The brush is so fine you can use it in really small areas. I used it over my Copics and it gives it a really nice sparkle and sheen. The shamrocks are colored with my Spica pens. The DP I used by Best Creations is embossed and glittered so I didn't want to cover it up with alot of layers. If you click on the image it will enlarge and you can see the glitter on the shamrocks on the DP and her vest as well as the embossing on the DP. I used my MS punch for the side border and my favorite tool of all time - Bow Easy - to set off the image. To finish off the card, I used Petaloo Dazzlers

.
I found a few challenges to enter this card in:
Corrosive Challenge - Sew It Up
ABC Challenge - "O" is for one paper
Practical Scrappers - Flowers
Stamp Something - Spring Somethings

For the inside top I only used the DP, it speaks for itself. The shamrocks on the bottom were cut my Cricut and layered and the little green shamrock was a stamp I had in my stash.



Now on to the blog hop. You should have arrived to me from Danni's blog and continue on to Jennifer's blog. You will be amazed to see what the DT and guests have in store for you. You can check the store blog to see the order of the hop. Be sure and check out the store to see all the NEW PRODUCTS.


Thank You for stopping by. I appreciate your comments.


OOPS! I almost forgot. This Sunday (21st) I am going to be posting fabulous BLOG CANDY!


Hugs,
