CardzTV Stamps Challenge #25 "Luck Of The Irish!"

This week at CardzTV Stamps the Challenge is "Luck of the Irish". Use stamped, digital or electronically cut shamrocks or leprechauns on your project. The challenge will run 2 weeks and Mary at CardzTV will be giving away a set of her stamps to the winner.

Here is my card:

Finished Card: 4 1/4" x 5 1/2"

Cardstock: White, 3 Shades of Green, Black, 2 Shades of Brown, Tan, Yellow and Patterned Paper
Cricut Cartridge Paper Doll Dress Up Body, page 29 (Base); Leprechaun, page 40 (Base, Shift, Headwear 1 Base, Headwear 1 Shift, Accessories 1 Base, Accessories 1 Shift, Accessories 2 Base, Accessories 2 Shift, Accessories 3 Base and Accessories 3 Shift)
CardzTV with Mary Clear Stamps Happy Days, " Happy St. Patrick's Day!"
Martha Stewart Tinsel Glitter, Florentine Gold
Nicole Ultra Fine Glitter Extra Fine Iridescent Gold
Pink Chalk
Mounting Tape

The tinsel glitter is in the pot. Boy, doesn't it shine? I thought this turned out cute. I don't use the Paper Dolls very often, but I really think I should. They always turn out so nice.

Do you celebrate St Patrick's Day? We do around here. Every year I always make corned beef and cabbage with boiled potatoes, (sometimes I make ham and string beans too, depending on how many people are coming over). We also have an Irish coffee after dinner! This dinner is a something that my mom started when I was a kid...and I kept the tradition going. Always brings a little of my Mom back to me.

Hope you like my project. Don't forget to check the other designer's projects and that Mary is giving away a set of stamps to the winner. Good luck.

Thanks for stopping by. Please leave a comment. I love to read them.
