CIC50 Shamrock Wishes












HAPPY ST. PATRICK'S DAY!  -  Even though I'm not Irish I still like to celebrate the day by wearing green.

Here is my card for this weeks Cupcake Inspiration Challenge.  What a fitting cupcake for St. Patrick's day.
I wanted to create a card that could be used for something besides a St. Patrick's Day card and I think this works.  I wanted a "linen" like feel to match the napkins and just had to include a shamrock of some kind. 
My little (Gnome or Leprechaun) is from Stampendous.  I colored him with Prisma Colored Pencils and paper pieced the hat.  I added some glitter (Sea from Art Institute) to the Shamrock.
My colors are:  Card Stock: Sage Shadow (SU) Light Beige is from a piece of Chocolate Box Core-dinations.  The patterned piece is one I've had in my stash forever and had no company listed on the back.  The (Wish) sentiment is a $1 find (Inkadinkado) and was stamped with Sage Shadow ink.  The eyelet lace is from my stash as well.  The brads are from Paper Hedgehog and the flowers are Prima's.
I distessed the edges with a paper distressing tool (SU).
