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


  1. This is really cute. I don't know what your original plan was but this turned out wonderful

  2. love the message on this card and have not heard it before

  3. What a fun card, Ida! I love your leprechaun hat and that woodgrain frame is awesome! Thanks for playing with our sketch this week at the Paper Players!!

  4. I think you accomplished a perfectly pretty little card Ida and well before the challenge close! I love those delicate shamrocks and the calming shades of green and what a perfect sentiment too! Thanks for sharing with us over at The Paper Players this week!

  5. What a cute St. Patrick's day card, Ida! I LOVE this wonderful sentiment. Everything coordinates so perfectly, from the hat to the pattern paper! Thank you for playing in my sketch challenge at The Paper Players this week!

  6. Your card looks terrific to me -- I like that you popped up the hat, as it adds detail and a focal point. I also LOVE the wooden frame die

  7. I love the hat stamp!! What a great sentiment, too. Maybe this year I'll mail the one St. Pat's card I made last year. I cannot keep up with the occasions!
