St. Patrick's Day Card


Green is the theme!
The Corrosive Challenge and Stamp Something both issued green challenges.
I used a CPS (card positioning systems) sketch. I found this fun ribbon to match. Whenever I use ribbon, I feel my life's goal is to make a perfect knot or bow! I didn't have any St. Paddy stamps so I downloaded this happy little guy from a free coloring book site! I had to shrink him a bit, but I'm really happy with the results!
Hope you're enjoying the last bit of your weekend! Prayers to all of you not feeling well!
Peace & Blessings to you all!!!
materials used:
Prisma markers, wild wasabi and summer sun cs, ATD yearbook paperpack, image from coloringbookfun.com, brads & ribbon from candy won!

What a great card. How ingenious of you to download the image from a coloring page site. And good job on your bow. I have never been good at bows.
