St. Patrick's Bouquet

Hi everyone! I've been shopping again - I have been SO bad lately. However in my defense, this gorgeous digi stamp from Power Poppy was (and still is) on sale for only $1.25. How's a girl to resist?! I love this oxalis bouquet, and since the plant has many varieties in many colors, I can see my self using it for other occasions. I had lots of fun coloring my image with Copic markers, and kept the rest of the card really simple to let it take center stage. I combined it with a sentiment from Ellen Hutson, because quite honestly, I haven't figured out how to insert a sentiment with a digi image yet! 

The St. Pat's challenges abound this week! I'm playing along with the challenges at Fusion  (the inspiration photo),  Inspired By (inspired by the colors and shamrocks), and the lucky theme at Addicted to CAS (hope I have enough white space)!

For you Copic colorer's, here are the colors I used.

Stamp Sets: Wish You Luck Digital Stamp (Power Poppy), Fancy Thanks (Ellen Hutson)
Card Stock: Solar White (Neenah), Green Leaf (Simon Says Stamp)
Patterned Paper: Itsy Bitsy Polka Dots (My Favorite Things)
Ink Pads: Tuxedo Black (Memento)
Markers: Copic
Tools: Big Shot, Stitched Rectangle Dies (Lawn Fawn)
Accessories: Moonshine Sequins (Simon Says Stamp)

Thanks for stopping by, and please leave a comment! 

Inky hugs :)

Hey friend, great St. Pat's card. I love this bouquet and wish I didn't make my 2 cards already. I am so far behind lately, I'm barely getting out BD cards. I'm going to see if I can download this . . . for next year! :)

Eeeek....so thrilled you found your way to playing with us, especially with this gorgeously-colored image! I don't blame you--for $1.25 it's a bargain! You must have had the luck of the Irish to find it, and we're lucky to have you share it with us! Beautiful! Thanks for playing with our IB challenge this week!
