Hi, It's Gini here with you today. Are you all ready for St. Patty's Day after seeing the great inspiration from the Beary Scrappy Gals this week? I'm going to a St. Patrick's Day party this afternoon, and I can't wait to eat a yummy Reuben sandwich! Well, I've got my card to share with you today. I didn't really have any St. Patrick's day stamps or paper, so this just goes to show you what you can do with everyday products. I really LOVE the Kraftin' Kimmie stamps! This little cutie is Lillith. I colored her with copics, and used some DP from Basic Grey's Sugar Rush line to paper piece her dress. I used papers from My Little Shoebox (Imagine a Forest - Happy Trees, Get the Camera), and then Bazill for the base CS. The crown is a glimmer chip from Tattered Angels and was colored with Glimmer Mist spray. I printed my sentiment on the computer and then cut it out using Spellbinders Ribbon Tag Trio II.
On the inside of the card, I printed another sentiment, and used my cuttlebug embossing borders to add the flowers. I have really gotten to the point that I love stitching on my cards, so I added a few rows of machine stitching in metallic gold thread to help pop the message. The little frog is the accessory stamp that comes with Lillith.
I wish all of you the Luck of the Irish this week, and be sure to check back tomorrow to see the exciting things we will have for you next week! Remember, you can get all of these goodies and so many more from the Beary Scrap!
