Feel Better



HAPPY ST. PATRICK'S DAY

 I'm not Irish so don't have big plans for today.  However, if I don't wear green, I know my grandkids will be over to pinch me, LOL.  I must have green in mind because the card I made today is green!

The  Clearly Delightful  challenge caught my eye so thought I would join in.   This week it is a sketch challenge.  Also Tina has green for her color challenge on StampTV so this card will qualify for two challenges.  I don't believe I have ever entered one card into two challenges.    I used two different design papers from a Making Memories paper pad (Paperie Poolside & Greenhouse).  A large Sizzix flourish was cut out using always artichoke cs.  The circles are ivory cs with an always artichoke background.  A thin strip of the same cs was cut to place across the middle.  Both stamp sets used are from Gina K Designs.  The butterfly is from "Hope is Faith" and the verse from "Tropical Windows".   To complete the sketch, a flower was added.

This card will be sent to a cousin who has been in the hospital.

Well it's a pretty green! You could stick the card in your pocket so your gkids can't pinch you! Very pretty card!

STUNNING! Selme is is very stylish. I love the combo of DPs and the way the butterfly is on the circle makes it really stand out.
