Simon Says Stamp challenge - a bit of green

Happy St Patricks Day to anyone celebrating today!! To celebrate at Simon Says Stamp our challenge is to use a bit of green! Nice and easy!! The design team are showcasing Basic Grey this week and if you have any Basic Grey papers or rubons etc we'd love to see them on your card! I tried to go with the St Patrick's Day theme a little more and made a good luck card with some shamrocks on! Both my papers are by Basic Grey, one from the Boxer Collection, the other the Euphoria Collection.

I have coloured Lazy Summer Day Tilda with distress inks and added some silver metal flock to her wings. I have stamped around the edge of the image with a swirl from the Whiff of Joy Christmas swirls set using bundled sage distress ink and then I've added stickles. The sentiment is from a Forever Friends set I've had for ages now. The blossoms are from Wild Orchid Crafts and have been sprayed with pearl glimmer mist.

The shamrocks I made myself using the "waste" hearts from my border punched with MS heart lace punch - I love finding uses for these cute little hearts! The swirls have been punched with EK success swirl flourish punch.

I added some ribbon from my stash to complete the card.

Hope you like it and can join us at Simon Says Stamp challenge this week! Please visit the rest of the DT for some gorgeous inspiration! Thanks for looking! x
