St Patrick's Day at Rainbow Lady's Challenge

Hi there, we've got a St Patrick's Day theme for our new challenge at Rainbow Lady's Challenge blog this week, do pop over and check out my teamies gorgeous projects if you've got a min, they are such a lovely talented bunch. 

I've used a shaped card blank from Crafty Boots for my card and created the background with a Crafters Workshop template and distress inks and stains. The image is a lovely freebie from Waltzing Mouse, as is the sentiment. I coloured the image with promarkers and cut it out, matting it on a kraft die cut, made using one of my new spellbinders dies. I'm really loving these lattice dies at the minute. I added a little twine pinched from the garden shed lol and a little green button to finish off. It was only after I'd finished the card that I noticed it was upside down on the card blank eeeek, don't you hate it when that happens lol. 

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Fab'n'Funky: luck of the Irish
I love promarkers: anything goes
Make it Monday with kraft: Luck o' the Irish
Sentimental Sundays: go green or recycle
Sugar Creek Hollow: Monochrome green

Pop over and check out my lovely teamies projects if you get a min, they are such a talented bunch and have some beautiful projects to inspire you. Thanks for popping by today,
Claire xx
