Luck of the Irish

Good morning!  Happy Friday!  Hope you've had a good week and you have fun plans for the weekend!  The weather is supposed to be gorgeous here this weekend and I'm really looking forward to some outdoors time.  Right now, though, I'm here to share my DT card for this week's Copic/ProMarker Challenge at The Outlawz site.  The theme this week is "green/St Patrick's Day".  Choose the holiday, the color or both, but don't forget you have to have some coloring with alcohol markers (any brand).

Here is my card:


My card base and mats are cardstock from my stash so I'm not sure of the brand or color.  The glittery plaid patterned paper is from Michael's.  In addition, I punched two scalloped borders from different shades of green glitter papers.  The cute image is Little Irish Dancer from Mo's Digital Pencil.  I printed her on Make it Colour Blending Card and colored her with my Copics.  I added Crystal Stickles to her underskirt to make it sparkle.  The sentiment is from Create With TLC.  It is from the Feel The Green Set in Paulette's store here. Some sparkly green ribbon and a few green pearls from my stash finished my card.

Here is a close-up of the image:


Thanks for stopping by!  Be sure to check out the fantastic green creations from the rest of the DT over at the Copic/ProMarker Challenge.  We hope you'll have a chance to play along!  There are always fabulous prizes up for grabs when you enter the challenges at The Outlawz!

I am entering my card in the following challenges:
Sketch Saturday #249 (sketch)
Corrosive Challenge #169 (all that glitters)
Through The Craftroom Door Challenge (anything goes)
Loves Rubberstamps Challenge #43 (St. Pat's or shades of green)
Mo's DP2 Challenge #176 (ribbon and pearls)

Here is SS-249:

Have a great day and hope to see you soon!

  4. Hi Carla, Sorry I've been away from commenting for so long. This card is fabulous. Outstanding coloring and I love the papers also. The scallops and the pearls really help to bring out this darling little Irish girls.
    Enjoy the outdoors. Today it is only in the twenties and I don't see it getting any warmer for the next few days. Take in some sunshine for me please.

  5. Darling Mo image. I've missed her while shopping I guess. You've done a beautiful job coloring the little Irish lass. Love what you did with the designing of her and the card. We are having 80 degree weather again today so I will be going out to the flower beds and working on pulling weeds.
