Arianna in green

Hellloooooo, don't you just love the weekends?? I'm planning a day in my craft room today as hubby is going to watch the football but before I go and get inky I wanted to share this card. Arianna is one of Michelle Perkett's gorgeous digi stamps, and I thought she'd be perfect for all the 'green' challenges around at the minute. You can find her in Michelle's Etsy Store here

Arianna is coloured with promarkers and cut out. I've layered her up over a doiley and some white ribbon and lace. I added some white flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts and as I'd coloured the flowers in her hair red I added a few little red rose buds for some extra colour. The beautiful bp is a from the mottled stone collection at  Crafty Ann's and I've stamped a swirly border with a HOTP border stamp and embossed it with white EP. The green gems are from my stash

I'm entering Arianna in the following challenges:
Allsorts: Luck of the Irish
Crafty Purple Frog: Thinigs with wings
Corrosive Challenge: green
Delicious Doodles: Use green for St Patricks Day
Little REd Wagon: St Patty's day - green
Meljen's Designs: Green
House of Gilli: Green
Paperplay: green/good luck
Patties Creations: go green
Penny's Paper Crafty: going for the green
Scrap Creations: Going green
The Shabby Tea Room: Luck of the Irish

Thanks for calling by. You still have time to enter our fab Ribbon and Lace challenge over at Michelle Perkett Studio this week so if you haven't got any of Michelle's gorgeous images grab a freebie from Michelle's groups on PCP, SNR and CDAC and join in for the chance to win one of Michelle's images :-)

Right I'm going to go and potter around in my craft room before I'm tempted to start some housework lol. Hope you are having a good weekend
