St. Patty's Challenge for Flutter By Wednesday

Blimey - it's St. Patty's Day today! How are you celebrating?? At Flutter By Wednesday we're celebrating PMS style! That's right, this week the fab Katie from Paper Makeup & Stamps is sponsoring us!! So what do you think the challenge is? ummm are you still trying to figure it out? YEP it's to create a card using a BUTTERFLY, FAIRY or ANGEL and include shamrocks &/or green!! AND want to know something else - THERE IS A FABULOUS PRIZE this week as well!! WooHoo!! Now that's something to celebrate...

For my card I used Chelly with Lucky Clover from PMS - she's PERFECT for today's challenge!!

I used cardpatterns sketch 55 for my card. I was going to make a monochromatic card but was having too much trouble finding pattern greens in my stash & scraps. SO I went with this color combo thinking it never hurts to have a little pink :) I added some shamrock rhinestones that I picked up for a little bling. Of course, Chelly's wing have to be sparkly as well.

Isn't she adorable? So love how this turned out. I used Copics for skin and hair (oh and the boots) and pencils and OMS for the rest.

Bet you want to play along now right? I mean who wouldn't? Last week we had 130 participants - holy moly that's AWESOME!!! So many beautiful creations - I love seeing all the awesome talent out there!! Please visit the Flutter By Wednesday Blog to link your creation and to find out about the fabulous prize!! Don't forget to check out what my fabulous DT sisters have done...they are so freakin' talented!!

Thanks so much for stopping by! Tomorrow is Softpencil Thursday. Today Abby and I are going to attend the St. Patty's parade here for the first time. It's supposed to be rather chilly so not sure how long we'll stay. But I'm going to take some pics. Yesterday we went bowling and I took pics - even got a few of me in them. I'll share those in the next few days as well!! Now if I could just get all my obligations done so I could start scrapbooking again - that would be great! I'm READY! :o)
