A Silly Little Card

DSCF8069-1

I saw a couple of challenges yesterday, and I knew I had to put to paper an idea I had kicking around in my head.  It’s a little silly, but it was fun to make!  I do not send out St Patrick’s Day cards----no Irish in my family—but it’s always good to have a sample in my stash just in case someone is looking for one!  So let me show you the card first, then I’ll clue you in on the challenges:

The first challenge is Stampin’ Royalty’s color challenge:

SR_colour_challenges-SR61

the second is The Paper Variety’s “Let’s See Your Green”:

TPVgreen

and the third is Stampin’ Celebration’s “A Little Bit of Luck”:

SCIC421

The card is pretty straight-forward; I made the hat with the tab punch, using half of the punch to punch out a Wild Wasabi piece, then punching it again to make a smaller piece.  I colored the branch punchouts with a Chocolate Chip marker for the bark; everything else is from the Owl Punch.  Again, it’s a fun little card---and that’s what St. Pat’s is all about, right?  Thanks for visiting today!
