Happy St. Patrick's Day


Sandy here with you today, Leslierahye is having technical difficulties.  Our challenge theme this week is Celebrate and since it is St. Patrick's Day, I thought I would join in the fun.  Using my French Flair Stackers, I created a white easel card.  Using green card stock, I added a Horizon French Flair Boutique layer to both the front and the base of the card.  Next came a DP panel, cut with a coordinating Silver French Flair Stacker.  Using green card stock again, I cut a Horizon Circle Boutique layer and another DP panel using a coordinating Silver Circle Stacker.  This was the perfect backdrop for this fun Leprechaun from Karen's Doodles. To create the panel across the center of the base, I used my Horizon Rectangle Boutique die.


For my flowers I used Tea Rose Small, Tea Rose Medium and Sweet Christine flower strips.  I die cut one strip of each.  Using a black Micron pen, I added some veins to the petals and then added green Distress ink.  Using a stylus and an embossing mat, I added some shape to the flowers.  Then I stacked the Tea Rose medium and small to create the larger flowers turning them so the petals do not line up.  The single blooms are the Sweet Christine petals.  I added some green Stickles to the centers of the flowers.  The leaves are part of the tea rose dies. 


Lastly, I added Celebrate to the center panel on the base.  Finished size is 5 5/8 inches square.  Be sure to check out this week's Celebrate challenge for a chance to win a $20 shopping spree at Cheery Lynn Designs.
