Happy St. Patrick's Day


Happy Tuesday my friends.  On Sunday, I had a couple of hours while the boys played outside to make cards for a variety of challenges.   So you'll be seeing challenge cards on the blog for the rest of the week!  I was happy to create just for the sake of creating and pick/choose challenges. Today's card is for Dynamic Duos and CASE this Sketch.   Rather than sticking with a completely green palette for my St. Patrick's Day card, I decided to add in the blue for the card base.  If you look closely too, you'll see that my neglected but very loved PTI linen impression plate was used to add a bit of texture to the white panel.  Hope you like it and that your week is zooming along.

I'm off to Jacksonville for three days of work early this morning...

I hope you only have one friend with a St. Patrick's Day birthday ;) That little garden of shamrocks is whispering , "send us to Moe's place!" I'm sure of it! LOVE the aqua background and the subtle linen texture. Safe travels! I woke up to 2 inches of snow :( Hopefully it will be gone by tonight!

If I were a betting gal, I'd say this beauty is heading north ;) Love the assortment of shamrocks with the turquoise!

No way would I have gotten a whole week's worth of creations completed in a couple of hours! I so need to try more CAS stuff ;). LOVE the way you've separated the white, cardstock panels and how you've tied in that gorgeous blue! So pretty!

So glad you were able to create just for fun. Loving the addition of blue for an unexpected twist to the St. Patrick's card and the negative space for the sentiment.
