A St. Patrick's Day SFYTT

HAPPY ST. PATRICK'S DAY!!! Are you wearing your green today? Here's a card I created using Jen Del Muro's most recent "Sketch For You To Try (SFYTT)." Click HERE to see the original sketch and to learn how you can play along.


I am honored to introduce you to "Chickie O'Shea" (well, technically he's the "Large Chickie" image from DeNami Design, but since I dressed him up like a leprechaun I thought I should give him an Irish name...Ha!). Isn't he CUTE?!!?!! I LOVE him!!! And I am thinking this could become a tradition for me----dressing Chickie up for various occasions!! Oh, that would be such fun!!!

I started out by stamping the Large Chickie image onto pale yellow cardstock. Then, I accented him with my Copic Sketch Markers. I made the hat from little scraps of cardstock that I had in my scrap box. His 4 leaf clover (for good luck of course) was created using my Fiskars Shape Boss. I just embossed 4 hearts next to each other and added an embossed stem. Then, I cut it out and added some sparkle with my Stardust Gelly Roll pen. 

Close-up:


The green cardstock background is embossed with polka dots. I did this using my Fiskars Shape Boss. And, I created the sentiment using my "Susan Branch Letters & Numbers" (All Night Media).

Well, may the Luck O'the Irish be with each and every one of you today and always! Thanks for stopping by!
