Paper Players Theme Challenge - Spring

 I'm joining the Paper Players Theme challenge today & just getting it in under the wire. - Long day yesterday trying to find a missing cat so no time to stamp until this morning.

 Thankfully I had this piece of paper in my stash of (project ideas) that I was able to get out and use for this card.
Card Stock: Bermuda Bay, Green Galore* (*retired SU) and an unknown piece of textured card stock for the border and circle.  I also used Whisper White
 Sentiment is from Amuse Studio
Bird Die is from Momenta.
Also used a few sequins, black bead for the birds eye.  Foam mounting tape and a border punch.

Paper Players Sketch #530


Hello & Welcome
Today I'm sharing a card for the Paper Players Sketch Challenge #530.
I always seem to be just getting my cards in under the wire for the deadline but at least I've accomplished something.
I started this card twice today but once again a "boo-boo" with the stamp not stamping all the way down made me have to alter my plans just a little for the card.
So here is my take on the sketch:
I actually like the alteration of my original card.
Card Stock: Old Olive, Crumb Cake & Whisper White (SU)
Stamps: Sentiment is from The Craft Lounge - Shamrock Blessings
Hat - Rubberstampede - Leprechaun Hat
Paper - Source Unknown - Purchased at JoAnn's many years ago.  I only had one small piece and ended up having to cover the boo-boo in the corner with the extra piece of olive card stock.
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
Prisma Color Pencils,
Gamsol, Blending Stump
Glitter - Key Lime (Art Institute)
Quickie Glue Pen, Gold Gel Pen
Die: Hero Arts
