Anything But a Card Challenge 14: St. Patrick's Day or GREEN





still hard to read:  May your blessings outnumber the shamrocks that grow. And may trouble avoid you wherever you go.


Hello everyone! Today I have my project for our Anything But a Card Challenge that is starting the second week today.  The theme is to do something related to St. Patrick's Day, Ireland, or Green as in color or as in recycling...or any combination thereof!  I hope you can join us this week!

I made a tag using an image from The Octopode Factory- it is a freebie, and I have printed it and colored with copics, then cut it out.  The tag is made from Gina K heavy weight cardstock- then I used Distress inks in Mowed Lawn, Fresh Squeezed Lemonade, and some Shabby Shutters and Mustard Seed too.  I had stamped a background on it, but then decided to use the doily instead.  The sentiment is from VLVS and is embossed with metallic gold EP from Recollections.  The trim on the bottom is from a card kit I received in a swap, and the ribbons are from my thrift store finds.

Challenges:

Crafty Ribbons Challenge- anything goes with ribbons
Inky Impressions- St.Pat's or green
Creative Corner- go green
Digi Haven- green 
Dilly Beans- green
QkR Stampede- green
